Volunteers were in to build emergency food boxes for people in need, in particular for kids. This is one activity included within the “Summer of Dreams” initiative that is championed by Fifth Third Bank. As the major sponsor of the initiative, Fifth Third continues to make a multi-year ongoing commitment – making a huge difference.
Summer time is the most critical time to feed kids because they are out of school and not enjoying the free school breakfast and lunch program. Many families are still struggling with trying to make ends meet. One in four children in Central Florida don’t know where their next meal is coming from. This fact is something that no child should have to worry about. Major kudos to Fifth Third and all of the sponsors of the Summer of Dreams initiative – you’re a huge part of the solution to hunger.
