Fifth Third Bank recently donated $840.00 to The Centre for Women in Hyde Park as part of their Jeans for Charity program. Through the program, employees pay $10 a month to an employee-nominated charity in order to wear jeans on Fridays.
The Centre is a nonprofit organization that serves over 3,000 women, girls, families and seniors each year with programs such as individual and family counseling, employment preparation and substance abuse treatment for women, after-school and summer programs for girls, and home repairs and rehabs for low-income seniors.
In addition to the donation, Fifth Third Bank employees also provided financial empowerment seminars to women at The Centre as part of the bank’s Empower U program.
