Waldorf, Md., March 3, 2012 - Over the last several months, Community Bank of Tri-County underwent a system-wide technology upgrade, resulting in some excess hardware. As a result, the bank recently donated over 20 monitors to St. Peter's School in Waldorf, Maryland. This gift will help the school achieve its goal of increased access to technology across all grades.
"At Community Bank of Tri-County, we believe in the value of the community and making a difference in the areas where we work and live," said Hillary Theriault, Vice President and Director of Marketing of Community Bank of Tri-County and St. Peter's School parent. "One of our values here at the bank is to be community-focused. So, when I contacted IT about the possibility of donating this gently-used equipment to the school, they were more than happy to help."
"St. Peter's is delighted to receive this gift," says J.R. West, Principal of St. Peter's School. "Through the generous donation of Community Bank, we can finish upgrading the monitors in our existing computer lab, as well as commence with the planned expansion."
