RFK, Chris Buescher Participate in Annual Fifth Third Day

Chris Buescher and RFK Racing celebrated Fifth Third Day by packing meals at Second Harvest Food Bank Metrolina Friday morning, all part of the Bank’s initiative to tackle food insecurity across its nationwide footprint.

The Bank has recognized 5/3 on the calendar as Fifth Third Day since 1991, and since 2012 the Bank and its employees have worked toward a common goal to fight hunger. For the last several years, Fifth Third has collaborated with Feeding America and partner food banks to serve communities.

RFK has been a longtime supporter of Fifth Third Day, as once again Buescher and a host of RFK employees visited the Charlotte community to give back.

“We’re obviously thrilled to again be partnering with our friends at Fifth Third to play a very small role in giving back to our local community,” said Buescher, driver of the No. 17 Ford. “Fifth Third has always done a great job of being active and visible in the community, and Fifth Third Day is yet another reminder of the impact they’re making both here in Charlotte and across the country.

“Tackling food insecurity is something that’s very real all around us even though we may not notice it, and our hope is that these small initiatives prove to be much larger in impact.”

$1 helps to provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local partner food banks. For those not within the Bank’s 11-state retail footprint, RFK is once again selling #53Day shields for $1 (purchase here, which provides 10 pounds of food each. #ShowYourShield by purchasing direct from RFK or at a local Fifth Third branch.

Buescher will be in the No. 17 Fifth Third Bank Ford again next weekend at Darlington Raceway for the annual #NASCAR Throwback race (May 12, 3 p.m. ET, FOX, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
