Jan. 22 /CSRwire/ - Bank of America has set up an account in response to the January 13 disastrous earthquake in El Salvador. Anyone across the United States may make a cash donation to the Salvadoran American Health Foundation (SAHF) at Bank of America banking center locations.

"Cash contributions are easier and more effectively channeled to those in need during disasters," said Eduardo Aguirre, president, Bank of America International Private Bank. "All the money collected throughout Bank of America will go directly to SAHF to use during this national state of emergency."

In addition to our initial $8,000 contribution to SAHF, Bank of America Foundation has donated $5,000 to the American Red Cross for this relief effort and will match charitable contributions made by Bank of America associates. "This disaster hits close to home as we spend time in El Salvador with customers and clients," said Aguirre. "Bank of America is proud to offer financial support to the American Red Cross and SAHF as part of our commitment to our communities."

The Bank of America Foundation is committed to improving lives by providing educational opportunities, building inclusive communities and promoting cultural outreach. Last year, Bank of America contributed more than $100,000 to the American Red Cross for disaster relief efforts.
