ECHO and KYCC Receive Pandemic Relief Match Grants
Pacific Premier Bank prioritizes giving back to our communities and supporting local organizations, particularly those who have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are honored that the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco (FHLBankSF) has accepted our pandemic-relief grant match request for two of our outstanding nonprofit partners, El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) and Koreatown Youth Community Center (KYCC). FHLBankSF will match a portion of the Bank’s donations, providing $12,500 in additional grant support for both ECHO and KYCC.
ECHO is a nonprofit organization serving San Luis Obispo County, focused on providing food, shelter, and supportive services, such as workforce development, job placement, and case management, for low-income individuals and families who are facing hunger and homelessness. Due to high housing costs and the pandemic, ECHO has experienced an increased need for their services.
KYCC is a nonprofit organization serving recently immigrated, and economically disadvantaged youth and families living in Koreatown, Central Los Angeles, and its surrounding neighborhoods. KYCC provides a full spectrum of services in the areas of education, health, housing, and finances in order to build economic stability for low-income residents, many of whom have been disproportionally impacted by the pandemic.
The additional funding from FHLBank San Francisco will help make a meaningful difference within these communities and is one example of how they partner with member banks to build stronger communities, create opportunity, and change lives for the better.
