Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff is pleased to announce the continuation of Thankful Tuesdays – a new way to support our island community’s recovery from Hurricane Ian. 

“We need each other now more than ever, so take a break and come by for a visit. Every Tuesday, we are offering food, services, and other surprise gift items. This coming Tuesday the 29th, we think it’s time to focus on stress relief for our customers and neighbors. From 9am-2pm, we have arranged for Kandy Love of LoveWorks to provide seated shoulder massages on a first come/first serve basis. We will also continue to offer refreshments as we have since the launch of Thankful Tuesdays,” said Roepstorff.  “It’s our way of saying how thankful we are to be your island bank.”

The program started on Tuesday, November 8, with Bank of the Islands inviting neighbors and customers to visit the Sanibel office for refreshment and renewal. Previous offerings of support have included coffee, doughnuts, boxed lunches, and 4,000 pounds of bagged ice to help those working on their homes and businesses.

The Bank’s Captiva office has reopened after the hurricane. Located next to the Captiva Post Office at 14812 Captiva Drive, it is open from 9am-3pm Monday-Friday. Beginning November 28, the Bank will also be offering full banking services from 9am-4pm Monday-Friday out of its temporary on-site operation at its Sanibel office, located at 1699 Periwinkle Way at Casa Ybel Road. In addition, our Edison National Bank offices in Fort Myers at 13000 S. Cleveland Avenue and our River District office at 2105 First Street will continue to welcome all our island customers. 

As the oldest locally owned and managed community bank on Sanibel and Captiva, Bank of the Islands is celebrating its 25th anniversary and proud to be the winner of more than 50 “Best of the Islands” awards over two decades.
