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 morning, we are offering food, services, and other surprise gift items. In honor of Thanksgiving, this coming Tuesday the 22nd we will be offering boxed turkey sandwich lunches with chips, a cookie, and bottled water while they last. We will also continue to offer other 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 from 9-11am. The office is located at 1699 Periwinkle Way at the corner of Casa Ybel Road. Previous offerings of support have included refreshments and 4,000 pounds of bagged ice to help those working on their homes and businesses.

Beginning November 28, the Bank will be offering banking services out of a temporary on-site operation at its Sanibel office, located at 1699 Periwinkle Way. In addition, our Edison National Bank office at 13000 S. Cleveland Avenue in Fort Myers will continue to welcome all our island customers. The Sanibel office building will also remain open from 9 am-4 pm Monday through Friday for safe deposit box access.

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.
