In the Community: Nonprofit round-up

Chesapeake Bank has a very busy fall planned. This September, each of our services regions will be participating in a community event or fundraising campaign to support their local communities.

On September 13, the Williamsburg employees will be participating in the United Way of Greater Williamsburg’s annual Day of Caring event. This event was created as a way to spur volunteerism in communities across the country and this year’s Day of Caring will be fueled by hundreds of volunteers who will be completing dozens of projects across the Williamsburg area. To volunteer, go to www.uwgw.org to download the volunteer form. Complete the form and submit by Thursday, September 5.

In the Northern Neck region, Chesapeake Bank employees will be participating in a “Build Day” for the Lancaster/Northumberland Habitat for Humanity on Sept. 21. To volunteer with our Chesapeake Bank team, come out to any of our branches in the Northern Neck area and register.

The Gloucester & Mathews branches are raising funds for the Gloucester-Mathews Free Family Clinic to help the organization purchase a new building to house its operation. The branches will be raising funds during the month of September. There will also be a fund drive at our Gloucester branch on Friday, September 20 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

To support the Capital Campaign, our Hayes and Gloucester branches will be hosting bake sales in the morning on September 6 and September 27. Our Mathews branch will also host a bake sale on September 27.
