Fifth Third Bank Supports Veterans Through A Variety Of Outreach, Commemorative And Fundraising Efforts Throughout Its 12-state Market. Information Is Available At Www.53vets.com (Graphic: Business Wire)

Fifth Third Bank announced today that it has donated $150,000 to Rebuilding Together, a national nonprofit, to fund long-term home rebuilding projects with a special emphasis on veterans.

Fifth Third Bank and Rebuilding Together will join forces on Thursday, Nov. 7 on home rebuild projects for low-income veteran homeowners in six cities across the country. Up to 400 Fifth Third Bank employees will help Rebuilding Together make critical repairs, accessibility modifications and energy-efficient upgrades at no cost to the veterans.

Employees from local Fifth Third Bank affiliates will join Rebuilding Together’s Atlanta, Charleston, Dayton, Detroit, Knoxville and Tampa Bay affiliates to revitalize the homes. In addition to these projects, the Bank has partnered with People Working Cooperatively for its “Ramp it up for Veterans” initiative and will work on a similar project for a veteran in Cincinnati on the same day.

“There’s no more fitting way to celebrate and honor the contributions made by our servicemen and women than by taking care of our nation’s veterans,” said Kevin T. Kabat, vice-chairman and CEO, Fifth Third Bancorp. “This association with Rebuilding Together enabled our two organizations to work together locally to positively impact local communities through these housing revitalization projects. We are grateful to Rebuilding Together for giving us the opportunity to serve those who have served.”

“We are grateful for Fifth Third Bank’s support and look forward to partnering on rebuilding these veterans’ homes,” said Charley Shimanski, president and CEO of Rebuilding Together. “Fifth Third’s commitment to creating and sustaining vibrant communities through local engagement will help further our mission of bringing volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners in need.”
