Fifth Third Bank gives back on its "special" day – May 3 – by feeding hungry families


Fifth Third Bank has its own special holiday, May 3rd, which is five (5), three (3) on the calendar. Each year the bank celebrates its special day by giving back to the community.
 
This year, leading up to Fifth Third Day, Fifth Third team members are making donations to God’s Pantry and volunteering at the food bank to help the fight against hunger in Kentucky.
 
“Fifth Third Day is a perfect opportunity for our Company to reach out into our local communities and make a difference,” said Tom Partridge, president and CEO of Fifth Third Bank (Kentucky). “Because we understand the impact living with hunger can have on families and the community, we have dedicated our 2013 celebration to fighting hunger.”
 
In addition to giving of their time, Fifth Third employees are also opening their pocketbooks and giving monetary donations to God’s Pantry. “We are inviting the public to join us in this worthy cause, said Brant Welch, Fifth Third Bank marketing manager. “We will have God’s Pantry collection canisters at each of our 19 Central Kentucky branch locations, making it easy for our friends and customers to contribute. The fact that there are hungry families, senior citizens and children living among us is a harsh and sad reality, and we want to help!”
 
This is the second year Fifth Third has recognized its holiday by feeding our communities. In 2012, the Bank’s 22,000 employees across the company’s 12-state footprint celebrated Fifth Third Day by providing more than 340,000 meals to fight hunger. In Kentucky, that translated into thousands of meals that were provided to hungry families.
 
For more than 20 years, the Bank has used its holiday to recognize the contribution of its employees, thank its valued customers and support communities where it operates.
