Local businesses owners First State Bank of the Florida Keys and Peter Pike & Associates have launched a Keyswide effort to provide humanitarian help for Hurricane Irene victims in the Bahamas.
Working with the American & Bahamas Red Cross organizations, First State Bank opened a Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund bank account for cash donations to help the hurricane victims with water, food and shelter.
Cash donations and supplies of dry packaged food items and water are being accepted at any of First State Bank’s 11 Keyswide branches or at Peter Pike & Associates, 471 US Highway 1, Suite 101, Big Coppitt Key (mile marker 10).

“First State Bank is proud to partner with local business owner Peter Pike and the Red Cross to help our neighbors during their time of need.” said Don Lanman, Senior Vice President of First State Bank of the Florida Keys. “This is another example of locals working with locals to help others.”
