Friday Focus: Focused on our Community

In the summer of 2013, Community Bank of the Chesapeake kicked off a brand new blog series called “Friday Focus”. The goal of the series was simple: to help boost awareness for the many nonprofit organizations hard at work in our communities.

After a year and a half, and over fifty interviews, we wanted to take a moment to thank the organizations we have featured for the work that they do. Every one of these organizations fills a special role in the community; from helping families in need with  food, shelter and clothing to providing opportunities for cultural enrichment to protecting our lands and natural resources.

The New Year is a time for resolutions, and there’s no better time to make a new commitment to getting out and getting involved! This year, consider joining or supporting one of these organizations; there are so many ways that your time and talent can help. And don’t forget to check our blog on Fridays as we continue to get the inside scoop on new nonprofits throughout 2015!
