Hispanic/Latino Financial Empowerment Event on Board the eBus
An educational initiative on wheels will be rolling through the St. Louis area this summer, with a special stop at Casa De Salud to visit the Hispanic/Latino community on July 29. Fifth Third Bank’s eBus will be offering financial empowerment tips and workshops over a two-week period, making stops in a number of low and moderate-income neighborhoods.
“The eBus is a great way to get our bankers out into the community, counseling people on ways to improve their financial picture,” said Royce Sutton, vice president and community development manager for Fifth Third Bank in St. Louis. “It allows people free access to credit reports, homeownership information, small business information, and other practical money management advice.”
The 40-foot eBus, making its sixth tour of St. Louis in the past five years, is a way for Fifth Third Bank to reach out to communities often overlooked by other traditional banks. To date, Fifth Third Bank has conducted more than 1,500 one-on-one counseling sessions aboard the eBus in St. Louis.
To add some fun and draw attention to the events, radio DJ’s will be broadcasting live from each eBus stop. Some locations will also offer giveaways and games.
One of the eBus stops is targeted to small business owners and entrepreneurs, and will feature the Fifth Third Bank NASCAR show car, #17. The car will be on display on July 31 at the bank’s downtown location. This event is part of the Small Business Expo, and bankers will be on hand to offer tips on business start-ups and financing. Several speakers from other organizations will also share advice for entrepreneurs.
