Fifth Third Bank employees hold food drive; make donation to Mountain Mission

Posted: Updated:

A bank in our region made a donation on May 3, designed to help those in need.

During a ceremony Friday in Charleston, Fifth Third Bank presented food that was collected by customers and employees to John Roberts, Director of Mountain Mission.

Managers at Fifth Third said they've been marking the day for 20 years by recognizing employees, thanking customers and supporting the communities where it operates.

Organizers of the food drive said it's important to remember there are hungry people, especially during the Spring. "The food pantries are usually full during the holiday season, but donations aren't as plentiful during other times of the year. It's necessary to think about stocking the shelves at times like this," said Bob Welty, state president of Fifth Third Bank.

Employees at the Kanawha City, Teays Valley and Cross Lanes locations also helped with the food drive.
