Chesapeake Bank Collecting School Supplies at Area Branches

Help Chesapeake Bank send area students back to school with smiles and full backpacks.

Over the next 2 weeks, July 18 through July 29, Chesapeake Bank will collect school supplies and monetary donations at its Five Forks, Lightfoot and Lafayette Street branches for the R.F. Wilkinson Family YMCA's Bright Beginnings program. Employee volunteers will also collect supplies and donations Sunday, July 24, at the free summer movie night on Prince George Street, brought to you by Blue Talon Bistro. The family friendly movie The Good Dinosaur will be showing. Attendees will be entered to win a Good Dinosaur themed toy for every school supply or dollar donated that evening.

School supplies needed include backpacks, crayons, pencils, pens, markers, glue sticks, scissors and composition books. Visit any Chesapeake Bank branch for a complete list.
