Waldorf, Md., June 30, 2011 - Community Bank of Tri-County is proud to support the American Red Cross of Southern Maryland for the fifth consecutive year through our participation in the Relax for Red Cross program. Relax for Red Cross is an annual program designed by Community Bank to support our local communities while allowing our employees to dress casually during the summer.
"This year we raised $6,000 for the Southern Maryland Chapter," says Michael Middleton, Community Bank of Tri-County Chief Executive Officer. "At Community Bank, supporting the communities where we live and work is a way of life. Making these contributions and helping to support Red Cross in their mission means a lot to our team."
Relax for Red Cross is a great way for the Community Bank of Tri-County employees to give to their local Red Cross. Community Bank employees who contribute to the American Red Cross receive a Red Cross bracelet and are entitled to casual dress for the three month period from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Community Bank also matched a portion of the proceeds raised from this event, which will benefit the American Red Cross Southern Maryland Chapter's Local Disaster Relief Fund.
"It's great to see our associates rally together to support the Southern Maryland Chapter of the American Red Cross" says Nancy Hayden, Community Bank Vice President and Director of Operations and American Red Cross Southern Maryland Chapter board member, "We are very proud of our employees' dedication to this cause."
Community Bank of Tri-County is the oldest independent financial institution headquartered in Southern Maryland with ten branches and over $800 million in assets. Community Bank of Tri-County branches are conveniently located throughout Charles, Calvert and St. Mary's counties.
