Bank of the Islands recently made its latest non-profit donation through its “We Love Our Islands” program. Islander and bank customer Wendy Harris was the lucky winner. As a longtime supporter of its social services for neighbors in need, it came as no surprise that Wendy directed that the Bank’s $400 donation be given to F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva.


This donation marks $103,400 given away to date through Bank of the Islands’ “We Love Our Islands” program.


“Especially during this holiday season of giving, the work F.I.S.H. does is truly a lifeline for so many,” said Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff. “We’re so glad Wendy chose F.I.S.H. to receive the Bank’s donation in her honor. Gifts like these are such a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank.”
