RLL Racing Joins Bank's Effort to Provide 1 Million Meals in May
Indianapolis - Fifth Third Bank is getting revved up for Fifth Third Day (5/3 on the calendar) by kicking off the Feeding Our Communities campaign with the help of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) and INDYCAR driver Graham Rahal.
The goal of Fifth Third's Feeding Our Communities campaign is to provide more than 1 million meals to those in need during May.
"The purpose is simple: to improve lives and build stronger communities," said Kevin Hipskind, regional president of Fifth Third Bank. "This is what we do every day, but we do it bigger and a Fifth Third better on Fifth Third Day."
On May 3, Rahal and local Fifth Third employees will serve dinner at the St. Vincent House to families who are staying there while their children undergo care at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital.
"This is just one reason why I'm proud to partner with Fifth Third on and off the track," said Rahal. "It's a privilege to be able to do something good for families that are going through so much."
Families of children who require extended hospital stays can experience a financial burden caused by out-of-pocket expenses and loss of work. Families who stay at St. Vincent House are asked to contribute $20 per night, but the fee is waived for those who can't afford it.
"Many patients come to Peyton Manning Children's Hospital from significant distances, and the families struggle financially with the costs of hotels and food in order to be near a loved one who is hospitalized," said Connie Cripe, Director of the St. Vincent House. "The St. Vincent House would not be able to offer what we do without volunteers like Fifth Third and Graham Rahal."
Interviews and photo opportunities will be made available at:

When: May 3, 5 - 6:30 p.m.
