Great Florida Bank recently contributed $5,000 to United Way of Miami-Dade, an organization focused on improving education, financial stability and health within the local community.
“We’ve been proud supporters of United Way since our bank was founded in 2004,” said Erbi Blanco-True, director of Community Development at Great Florida Bank. “Everyone deserves a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support their family, and good health. Not only are we contributing to our community, we are helping build a more educated workforce.”
The bank’s donation will go towards United Way’s Center for Financial Stability. The center, which opened in October 2009, provides a full range of tools and resources necessary to help individuals and families increase and maximize their income, a critical step to achieving financial stability.
It allows them to not only meet daily expenses, but have additional funds to begin the long-term process of building their savings. With their savings underway, these individuals will be in a better position to gain and protect their assets such as buying a house, starting a business or saving for college or retirement.
“We are extremely grateful for Great Florida Bank’s donation,” said Vanessa Benavide of United Way. “We’re dedicated to doing all we can to help families and individuals who are struggling to make ends meet. This $5,000 donation will go a long way in helping those in need in our community.”
