Fifth Third Bank is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay for its annual Giving Tree Toy Drive campaign. The Giving Tree Toy Drive program will begin on November 2, 2020, and end on November 30, 2020.
Each Fifth Third financial center will host a “Giving Tree” decorated with gift tags that list the gender and age that pertains to the need of a child in the community, as well as a list of suggested gift ideas. You visit any Fifth Third Bank financial center in Pinellas County (and select locations in Hillsborough County) during November to pick up your gift tag and a list of age-appropriate gift ideas.
“Fifth Third Bank is proud to support Big Brothers Big Sisters Annual Giving Tree Toy Drive program during November,” said John Slavik, SVP, Retail Executive for Fifth Third Bank. “By allowing our financial centers to host a Giving Tree, we hope to create awareness around supporting those families in need during this holiday season.”
“Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them and who understands the power of connection,” said Stephen Koch, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay. “Our Fifth Third Bank partner is a champion and a connector for children throughout our service area.”
Your donation of a gift or gift card will help make a difference and ensure a brighter holiday season for the underserved youth in our community. All donations can be dropped off at one of the 17 Fifth Third Bank locations in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties that are participating in the project.
