As Thanksgiving approaches, Bank of the Islands is giving thanks for their customers and island neighbors. On Monday, Nov. 18, visitors to the Bank's Sanibel and Captiva offices will receive a special gift for their Thanksgiving celebration.
"This is just a small way we can show how grateful we are to be your island bank," said Bank of the Islands Sanibel Office Manager Rob Lisenbee. "It's also an important time to remember those less fortunate, so we hope you will bring a contribution to our Canned Food Drive."
Donations to the Bank of the Islands Canned Food Drive will be delivered to Friends In Service Here, the island non-profit best known as F.I.S.H. Any non-perishable food items would be welcome additions for the F.I.S.H. Food Pantry.

"F.I.S.H. provides urgently needed support and services for our neediest neighbors," said Bank of the Islands Captiva Office Manager Willy Ocasio. "While we accept lobby donations for F.I.S.H. all year long, it's our honor to spearhead this community drive to offer extra help as we enter the holiday season."
As always the Bank's freshly baked cookies and coffee will be available for visitors on that Monday, Nov. 18, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. All islanders are invited to stop by the Sanibel and Captiva offices.
