The countdown to area children going back to school has started.
And thanks to our employees and the communities we serve, many area children in need will be ready to start the school year off on the right foot.
Chesapeake Bank, Chesapeake Investment Group, Chesapeake Payment Systems and Cash Flow helped raise $3,416.73 in addition to filling more than a dozen decorated boxes with donated school supplies over the past few weeks. The cash donations and supplies will benefit the Williamsburg R.F. Wilkinson, Northern Neck and Mathews Family YMCA’s Bright Beginnings programs and the Departments of Social Services in Gloucester and Mathews.
Over the past two weeks, 27 of our employees in the Northern Neck, Mathews and Williamsburg combined to contribute more than 200 volunteer hours as Shopping Buddies to assist children in the Bright Beginnings program shop for school clothes.
Thank you to each and every one of you who contributed to our campaign.
