First State Bank Donates to Local Non-Profit Organizations
In support of their remarkable efforts throughout the pandemic, First State Bank of the Florida has donated $15,000 to local food banks and children’s non-profit organizations serving the Florida Keys community.
Due to the economic strain caused by COVID-19, an unprecedented number of Monroe County residents turned to local non-profits for help in 2020. In true Keys fashion, these organizations worked tirelessly to meet community needs by providing meals and essentials, efforts that may continue well into 2021, despite the fact that most if not all of their annual fundraising events were cancelled or diminished.
“We are proud of our local non-profits who have done so much for so many in this very dark hour of need,” said Karen Sharp, President and CEO. “We have donated these funds in support of these outstanding organizations. We are forever grateful for the help they provided and continue to offer to our friends and neighbors during these most trying times.”
First State Bank was pleased to make donations to the following organizations to help them continue their outreach to those in need:
KAIR - Keys Area Interdenominational Resources
Star of the Sea Foundation
Burton Memorial Food Pantry
Mangrove Mike’s Endeavors
Kids Come First
