Bank of the Islands recently made its latest non-profit donation through its “We Love Our Islands” program.  Island handyman and landscaper Taylor Maze was the lucky winner. Maze directed that the Bank’s $500 donation be given to F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva.


This donation marks $139,600 given away to date through Bank of the Islands’ “We Love Our Islands” program.


“F.I.S.H. provides essential social services, particularly for some of our year-round island neighbors,” said Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff. “If your own snowbird plans include closing your home down in the coming weeks and months, please consider donating dry goods for the F.I.S.H. food pantry. The pantry shelves can become quite bare in the summertime. Donations of non-perishable food items can be dropped off right in our bank lobby.”
