The 10K Race 4 F.I.S.H. Committee announces Bank of the Islands as a Silver sponsor of the 14th annual race in support of FISH OF SANCAP. “Bank of the Islands continues to be a strong supporter of FISH, our 10K race, and the islands,” said Nicole McHale, Co-Chair of the 10K committee, “We’re so grateful to partner with them again this year.”
Bank of the Islands is the oldest locally owned and managed community bank on Sanibel and Captiva, and the only bank with ATMs and offices on both islands. Its bankers have shown their dedication in providing genuine personal service and expedited local decision making for their customers. They have also demonstrated an undeniable commitment to supporting Sanibel and Captiva as volunteers and contributors to the islands’ non-profit organizations.
“FISH is such an important lifeline for so many members of our community,” said Bank of the Islands David Lowden, VP Private Client Relations. “We are honored to be a longstanding drop-off location for its food pantry and a sponsor for its annual 10K.”
Bank of the Islands encourages all islanders to donate non-perishable food items at the drop-off baskets conveniently located in its Sanibel and Captiva bank lobbies. Their Sanibel office is located at 1699 Periwinkle Way, at the corner of Casa Ybel Road. The Captiva office is at 14812 Captiva Drive, next to the Captiva Post Office.
