Fifth Third Bank (Tampa Bay) Launches Fundraising Campaign for Folds of Honor
To commemorate Veterans Day, Fifth Third Bank (Tampa Bay) recently kicked off a campaign benefiting the Folds of Honor Foundation. Through scholarships and other financial assistance, the organization gives back to the spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service to the country.
Donations from the community will be collected at Fifth Third Bank branches and will benefit families in the Tampa Bay area. The bank will match donations raised up to $5,000 cumulatively.
“We are proud to invite the public to join us in demonstrating our gratitude to those who serve in the military and their families,” said Brian Lamb, president of Fifth Third Bank (Tampa Bay). “According to Folds of Honor, more than 87% of military families don’t qualify for federal scholarship assistance. We know troops and their families make sacrifices every day protecting our freedom and are most certainly deserving of financial support.”
The fundraising effort will run through November 16. Everyone in the community is encouraged to participate. Cash or check donations payable to “Folds of Honor” will be accepted at all Fifth Third Bank locations in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk and Pasco counties.
