In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, the Florida Bankers Association released tips on how community bankers can contribute to relief efforts. FBA President and CEO Alex Sanchez wrote that financial donations can be directed to the state’s Florida Disaster Fund as well as the American Red Cross. He also encouraged those who wish to volunteer to participate via Volunteer Florida or the American Red Cross.

“We are very grateful for the outpouring of support from people around the country and around the world,” Sanchez wrote, “and, on behalf of Florida bankers, thank you for your thoughts, prayers, concern and offers to help.”
