Bank Of America Donates More Than 240 Properties In Florida To Nonprofit Organizations Supporting Military Veterans And Their Families

Bank of America has donated more than 800 homes in Florida to nonprofit partners that support affordable housing and community stabilization; 240 of those homes were donated to nonprofits that support military service members, veterans and their families.

Three new home dedications are taking place this week honoring three veterans and their service to our country. The veterans will receive the keys to their newly renovated homes, which will be provided mortgage-free by the Military Warriors Support Foundation in partnership with Bank of America.

“The property donation program is an important aspect of our commitment to support our veterans and the communities where we work and live,” said Mike Fields, Florida state president for Bank of America. “It builds on our commitment to neighborhood stabilization, as well as our longstanding support of military service members across the country.”

The bank works closely with nonprofit organizations that identify the home recipients and provide related services, such as financial counseling. Nonprofit partners include Military Warriors Support Foundation, HomeStrong USA and Habitat for Humanity.

On Tuesday, July 1, retired Army Sgt. Marcus Ziegler and his family received their mortgage-free home in Cocoa. Ziegler served from January 2008 to June 2013. He deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and while in Afghanistan, Ziegler sustained multiple injuries when the vehicle his unit was riding in struck an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). He received a Purple Heart, Combat Action Badge and National Defense Service Medal, among other distinguished awards for his service.

On Wednesday, July 2, retired Army Staff Sgt. Socheat Mom and his family received the keys to their mortgage-free home in Clermont. Mom served from October 2007 to April 2014. While deployed in 2012 to Afghanistan, he was attacked by a suicide bomber. Though he was wounded, Mom courageously assisted his fellow soldiers who were also impacted by the attack. For his bravery under enemy fire, Mom received an Army Commendation Medal with a "V" Device denoting valor and a Purple Heart.
