Donation of $10,000 Presented at Kings Drive Branch Ribbon-Cutting Celebration
CHARLOTTE, N.C., January 14, 2021 – Fifth Third Bank and Atrium Health Foundation partnered in 2020 for Atrium Health’s COVID-19 Feeding Program to ensure individuals and families could safely quarantine without hunger or hardship. Fifth Third Bank recently committed to additional support of Atrium Health’s continued Coronavirus Mobile Testing Center efforts with a donation in the amount of $10,000.
The mission of the mobile testing center is to address the needs of underserved and minority communities. Atrium Health is improving access to care by adding additional coronavirus testing sites using Geographical Information System (GIS) data to determine where testing sites are needed the most.
“We are proud to partner with Atrium Health Foundation as they continue to find ways to reach the most vulnerable in our community with much needed care,” said Joel Dancy, VP, Community and Economic Development, Mid-Atlantic Region, Fifth Third Bank.
Dancy and Atrium Health Foundation Director of Corporate Relations, Leslie Sykes were on hand along with Fifth Third Bank Regional President, Lee Fite this week for the check presentation during a ribbon-cutting celebration for the Bank’s newest Charlotte branch on Kings Drive. The branch is just across the street from Atrium Health’s Carolinas Medical Center campus in Charlotte.
“Fifth Third Bank has remained a key partner of Atrium Health as we continue to reduce barriers to care for underserved communities during the COVID-19 pandemic,” shared Sykes. “We are proud to provide equitable care to those disproportionately affected by the virus, and mobile health units can truly provide health, hope and healing – for all.”
