In addition to the $35,000 grant from Comerica to launch the Community
Resource Center, it was also announced that local Comerica employees will
teach a series of financial literacy workshops at Ella Austin starting this
summer. The workshops, free and open to the public, will cover a variety of
topics for children, adults and seniors including the basics of credit,
budgeting, elder care abuse scams and retirement planning, and will be offered
in both English and Spanish.

"While the Comerica Bank name is relatively new to San Antonio, we're
committed to serving this market as a trusted financial services partner to
San Antonio businesses and families, and to helping community organizations
like Ella Austin fulfill their missions," said Comerica's Faubion. "In
addition to providing a grant to launch this access hub for economic
self-sufficiency, the efforts of local Comerica Bank volunteers to teach the
financial literacy workshop series will help local residents, including
seniors, be successful in reaching their financial goals."

"We are most grateful that Comerica Bank has come forward with its generous
investment of $35,000 in our non-profit organization. By funding the new
Community Resource Center, which is desperately needed, Comerica Bank is
helping us give assistance, hope and the tools and resources in order for
local San Antonio residents to improve their quality of life and financial
well-being," said Anthony Hargrove, Executive Director of Ella Austin
Community Center.

Comerica Bank, through partner non-profits, currently operates two Comerica
Community Resource Centers in Southern Dallas and one in Houston's Third Ward.
