Bank Also Provides Storm-Related Reimbursements to Employees
ORLANDO, Fla. (Sept. 18, 2017) – Acting on its commitment to aid in the recovery from Hurricane Irma, Axiom Bank N.A. today announced that it has donated a total of $25,000 to three food banks and the state’s official disaster relief fund.
The four recipients are Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, based in Orlando;
Feeding Northeast Florida in Jacksonville; Feeding Tampa Bay, the Tampa division of the national hunger-relief organization, Feeding America, with a network of 200 food banks that includes SHFB and FNEF; and the state-managed Florida Disaster Fund, which distributes all donations to service organizations assisting communities with recovery efforts.
Axiom, the second-largest community bank in Central Florida, also extended a helping hand to bank employees impacted by the storm, offering them:
- Weekly stipends to cover the cost of food, water and child care during recovery.
- “Refill the refrigerator” reimbursement for lost contents due to power outage.
- Mobile food/water delivery in areas where stores are out of stock.
“We want to help Floridians, including our associates, get through this crisis,” said Daniel Davis, president and CEO of Axiom Bank N.A. “The organizations we are supporting with financial donations have the resources and know-how to bring substantial relief to people severely affected by Hurricane Irma. The bank’s leadership also felt strongly about easing the financial burdens the storm has caused members of the Axiom family.”
Davis added that the bank is working on arrangements to allow employees to volunteer with recovery efforts while still on company time. “We want to support associates who are willing to give their time to help others impacted by Irma,” he said.
