WLOI – Community Church Bernstein
Bank of the Islands gives $500 to Community Church
Bank of the Islands recently made its latest non-profit donation through its “We Love Our Islands” program. The lucky winner, Victoria Bernstein, was spotted with a “We Love Our Islands” decal on her vehicle, winning her the right to select which local non-profit group would receive a charitable contribution from Bank of the Islands. Bernstein chose to donate her winnings of $650 to the Sanibel Community Church. That donation marks $74,000 given away to date through Bank of the Islands’ We Love Our Islands program.
“We are so happy to present this donation to our neighbors just across Periwinkle Way,” said Willy Ocasio, Bank of the Islands’ Assistant Vice President and Sanibel-Captiva Office Manager. “The Community Church will use this donation to support their ongoing mission work. Ms. Bernstein’s choice of the Community Church as a We Love Our Islands’ beneficiary is such a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank!”
All islanders are invited to stop by the Bank’s Sanibel and Captiva offices to get a free “We Love Our Islands” decal and details on how you and your favorite charity can become our next lucky winners.
