The Bank of America Charitable Basis awarded a $350,000 grant to Parkland Basis to help the well being system’s walk-up COVID-19 testing websites.
“Parkland’s commitment to building a healthy community has long been appreciated in Dallas, and even more so the past few months as this health and humanitarian crisis continues to take its toll,” stated Jennifer Chandler, market president for Bank of America, Dallas through launch. “Supporting Parkland’s important work through this grant gives them a greater ability to reach underserved populations with free testing in neighborhoods that have been hardest hit by coronavirus, and it is an important demonstration of our commitment to address economic and racial inequity.”
