The Bank of Delmarva recently presented United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore with a check of employee contributions from their first United Way Campaign, totaling $11,668. This generous contribution will impact Lower Shore residents in need in the areas of Education, Financial Stability and Health by providing 1,794 books for preschool-aged children in low-income households, 27,789 lbs. of emergency food to fill the shelves of a local food pantry and 267 meals and a friendly check-in for 32 homebound seniors.
The Bank of Delmarva has remained an independent, full-service community bank since it was chartered in 1896. The bank remains committed to serving the local community and takes pride in knowing its customers and giving excellent customer service. The launch of a new campaign with United Way is just another way that the organization continues to maintain its values of service to the local community of Delmarva.
John Aukward, VP, Branch Manager of The Bank of Delmarva shared, “It is our pleasure to give back to our local community that we have served for so many years. Not only is this the season for giving, but it is also our duty as a community bank to support our neighbors in need all year long. United Way has the reputation for responsible stewardship of our contributions, and we hope that this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship.”
