Bank of the Islands invites all its customers and island neighbors to join them in supporting a seasonal initiative from F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva.


In addition to its ongoing collection efforts for the F.I.S.H. Food Pantry, the Bank will also be accepting special Easter-themed donations for the F.I.S.H. Spring Drive.


“F.I.S.H. supporters know the Bank’s longstanding support is unwavering. When undergoing our post-Ian lobby restoration, there was never a question about bringing back our F.I.S.H. collection station,” said Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff. “Beyond that ongoing effort, we’re also happy to accept donations to make the work of F.I.S.H. volunteers (including the Easter Bunny) a little easier in the weeks ahead. Community partnerships like this are such a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank.”


Specific requests for the F.I.S.H. Spring Drive donations include baskets, pails, Easter grass, children’s books, chalk, pencils, markers, painting supplies, coloring books, mini-toys, fidget toys, toothbrushes and hygiene products, candles, reusable bottles and Easter accessories.
