Florida Community Bank Hosts Second Annual “FCB Blue Day” To Raise Awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month

WESTON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month, Florida Community Bank
Financial Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:FCB), is raising awareness by hosting a
series of events at its banking centers. For the second year, during the
entire month of April, FCB invites customers and the community to join
their local support of child abuse prevention by visiting their local
FCB banking center and participating in the following activities:

  • FCB’s 2nd Annual Blue Day – Friday, April
    FCB customers and members of the community are invited to
    visit any FCB banking center and join FCB team members in wearing the
    color blue in support, and enjoy complimentary refreshments and
    goodies while supplies last. Blue is the designated color of
    Child Abuse Prevention Month.
  • Teddy Bear Drive – FCB is collecting new stuffed toys at all
    FCB banking centers. The stuffed animals collected will be donated to
    local first responders to provide comfort to children experiencing a
    traumatic situation.
  • Blue Ribbon Donations – Monetary contribution to FCB’s “Change
    for Change” fund will be collected and distributed to local charities
    supporting children in foster care. The complete list of charities FCB
    will contribute to is available at all FCB banking centers.

FCB will also display blue pinwheels at all of its banking centers
throughout the month. The pinwheel is the widely-adopted symbol of Child
Abuse Prevention Month, representing happiness, health and hope.

In 2015, FCB rolled out its “Year of the Child,” company-wide
philanthropy initiative, which focuses on supporting local children in
foster care. Since its launch, FCB employees have participated in
various activities to support the cause, and continue their commitment
to children by bringing awareness to the issue of child abuse prevention.

“Florida Community Bank hopes our second annual FCB Blue Day, along with
our blue ribbon donations and teddy bear drive, will encourage our
community to better understand the need for child abuse prevention, as
well as foster care, and do their part in support,” stated Kent Ellert,
President and Chief Executive Officer, Florida Community Bank. “It is an
honor for us to support our local first responders and the many
organizations across the state that share our commitment to children.”
