Axiom Bank, N.A. donated $10,000 to two nonprofits committed to fighting hunger across Central Florida and Tampa.
Feeding Children Everywhere, headquartered in Longwood, and Feeding Tampa Bay were each gifted $5,000 to aid in their mission of providing meals to families in need. With the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to stagger the region, both hunger relief groups have reported increased need at levels never seen before.
“As a community bank, we stand by our neighbors – in good times and bad,” said Dan Davis, president and CEO of Axiom Bank. “We’re grateful to these nonprofit organizations for their critical role in fighting hunger across Central Florida, and we’re humbled by the opportunity to be part of their cause.”
The bank’s donation will be used to provide hundreds of nutritious meals to families and individuals, including children and at-risk seniors confined to their homes. But the support doesn’t stop there. This summer, Axiom will place collection boxes at its Maitland headquarters and branches to encourage nonperishable donations.
“Many people are struggling financially due to the pandemic, but no one should ever go hungry,” added Davis. “This is a defining time for our community. We’re proud to do what we can to support the fight against hunger.”
