Fifth Third Bank Gives Belmont Community-Building Funds

Dr. Bob Fisher greets CRA Manager Luis Parodi and Financial Center Manager Rosa Berger of Fifth Third Bank.

Fifth Third Bank presented a $15,000 check to the Belmont University Office of Community Relations and Center for Service Learning on Aug. 9. The money will benefit the neighborhoods surrounding Belmont through student outreach and service projects.

Among the projects was the Next Generation Now Summer Enrichment Program, which hosted some 30 youth, many of them Edgehill residents, in a camp to improve academic achievement, community safety and nutritional health. Belmont senior Gabrielle Hampton was camp director.

Family Literacy Day and the Edgehill’s BEST newsletter, a collaboration between Belmont journalism students and Rose Park Middle School, also will benefit from the donation.
