Florida Community Bank is committed to supporting the communities in which we live and serve, especially our future generations. FCB’s 2015 company philanthropy “Year of the Child” is focused on supporting children between the ages of 13 to 17 that are currently in foster care and preparing for adulthood. Over the course of the year, we will focus on providing support to the following charities throughout the state that are also committed to this mission. Bringing awareness to preventing child abuse is a cause that is very important to the foster care system. In honor of Prevent Child Abuse Month during the entire month of April, FCB invites the public to join them at their banking centers for the following events:
Back Pack Collections – Drop off a new back pack at any FCB banking center to be donated to a local charity that supports children in foster care.
Blue Day – Join us on April 22, 2015 for refreshments and goodies. Stop by wearing BLUE to show we stand united in preventing child abuse!
Blue Jean Friday – Participating FCB employees will be making a personal donation to our “Change for Change” fund and will be wearing jeans every Friday during the month of April. Our “Change for Change” fund will be distributed to local charities that support children in foster care.
Customers and non-customers alike are invited to visit any of the 52 FCB Banking Centers on Blue Day on April 22, 2015 for complimentary refreshments and goodies while supplies last.
Florida Community Bank President and Chief Executive Officer, Kent S. Ellert stated, “Florida Community Bank hopes our first Blue Day and our back pack drive will serve to spur everyone to be more aware of preventing child abuse and bring awareness and support to the local foster care system. We welcome the opportunity to support so many local charities that are also committed to bringing awareness to this cause. FCB takes pride in being in a position to make a show of support in so many corners of our state.”
The local charities we will be supporting are Kids Central, Inc., Community Based Care of Central Florida, Brevard Family Partnership, Community Partnership for Children Inc., OurKids of Miami-Dade/Monroe Inc., ChildNet, Devereux Florida, Children’s Network of Southwest Florida, and Safe Children Coalition. FCB hopes you will join us to bring awareness to this important cause and support the children in our local communities!
