July 17, 2002

Interfaith Housing of Western Maryland received a $10,000 donation from the Bank of America to support Interfaith Housing's affordable housing programs.

"Bank of America shares Interfaith Housing of Western Maryland's mission of building healthy communities through the creation and preservation of affordable housing for low-income families, stimulation of jobs and the promotion of education," said William Couper, president of Bank of America-Greater Washington. "Our contribution is intended to help Interfaith Housing of Western Maryland continue their outreach efforts."

Tara Bates presented the check to James Upchurch, president of Interfaith Housing, in front of Weinberg Apartments on Broadway Street in Frederick, Md. The 23-unit senior apartment complex was made possible when a partnership was formed between Interfaith Housing and Bank of America (then NationsBank) in 1994.

Interfaith Housing has 39 projects in four counties.

"This gift from Bank of America will provide us with seed money to help us start future rental and homeownership projects that are affordable to low- and moderate-income households," Upchurch said.
