Waldorf, Maryland, May 8, 2020
– Community Bank of the Chesapeake proudly supports community organizations through their Annual Casual for a Cause program. On behalf of their employees and the Community Bank team, they have pledged $20,000 in community giving. Now, more than ever, community support is important whether it is volunteering, supporting small businesses, or donating to the non-profit community.
“We cannot show our appreciation enough for these organizations and the tireless work they do to support our communities. I am grateful to be a part of this community that feeds the hungry, shelters those in need, educates our youth and so much more,” said Jimmy Burke, President of Community Bank of the Chesapeake. “We look forward to our Casual for a Cause giving every year, but especially in these challenging times – it has been amazing watching community members step up in a time of need and we’re proud to be a part of that.”
In years past, Bank employees have made a donation in exchange for the opportunity to dress business casual for the Spring/Summer months. Funds raised during Casual for a Cause are donated to various community organizations each year. This year, the Bank chose to make this donation on behalf of their employees, as a thank you for their hard work and commitment.
Casual for a Cause funds will go to the following organizations, providing food, shelter, care, community support, resources and more.
“We thank each and every organization working daily to make a difference. Thank you for the commitment, dedication, support and hope,” said Burke.
