"Make Change in a Child's Life," was born after siblings, friends and families of sick children hosted lemonade stands and sold off toys and books to raise money. The bank, 101.9 FM "The Mix," and hospital foundation grew this grassroots effort into a concerted one focused on the collection of loose change.


The public is invited to stop into any Fifth Third branch between now and Wednesday, September 4, 2013 and donate change that will go directly to the Lurie Children's Hospital.

Popular FM radio morning show hosts, Erik & Kathy of 101.9FM The Mix, will broadcast live from the hospital on Friday, Sept. 6, 2013 from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. and all change collected through this effort will be presented.

"We believe you build a better bank by building a better community," said Robert A. Sullivan, president & CEO, Fifth Third Bank (Chicago). "We know that many clients and employees and others in our communities have called on the children's hospital during the darkest of days. Our annual support of this campaign is a no-brainer. Our children are the future. We want every child to have the chance to be curious and to think how he or she can, and will, make a difference in the world."
