Officials with Bank of America presented Mid-East Community Action Agency with a $10,000 contribution Dec. 3.
Jim Checolo, the consumer market manager for the Knoxville area, said Bank of America sets aside funds for charitable organizations each year. Decisions about where the money goes are made on the local level, however.
“So it’s not just one big corporation making these decisions,” Checolo said. “It’s based on the efforts that this charitable organization does in Roane County.”
