MBA and Member Banks Raise $37,132.71 for Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief with the American Red Cross

Annapolis, MD (January 24, 2013) – MBA and 17 participating member banks partnered with the American Red Cross over a 6 week period to assist in the response and recovery efforts of those affected by the
devastation of Hurricane Sandy.  On January 17, the culminating event was held at the American Red Cross of the Chesapeake Region headquarters in Baltimore with their Outgoing CEO, Frank Miller, and Kristen Duncan, Regional Events and Recognition Coordinator for the American Red Cross. We concluded the event by presenting the American Red Cross with a check reflective of the total amount contributed by all 17 banks and their communities, which was an incredible amount of $37,132.71.

We owe a special thanks to MBA member Russell Grimes, President & CEO, Carroll Community Bank, who led the initiative to partner with the Red Cross.
As MBA’s Kathleen Murphy stated in the initial press release, “Support of the relief effort is just another way that the Maryland Banking Industry demonstrates its commitment to giving back.”  Follows is the list of participating institutions, in which we are very grateful for their support and dedication to this vital initiative.
