’s Council of Professional Women in Banking and Finance - in conjunction with M&T Bank, The Family Tree and the Baltimore Ravens - is recognized for the 2014 Mayor’s Business Recognition Awards

, MD (December 19, 2014).  The 40th Annual Mayor’s Business Recognition Awards Luncheon was held on December 2, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency in Baltimore.  These awards honor businesses that have demonstrated significant corporate leadership and service for a better Baltimore and have committed resources to improving the quality of life in Baltimore City.  The Maryland Bankers Association’s (MBA) Council of Professional Women in Banking and Finance was recognized for its partnership with M&T Bank, The Family Tree and the Baltimore Ravens for “15 for Families” and the distribution of new shoes to Westport Academy in Baltimore this past summer.  

The new shoes distributed to Westport Academy were donated to the MBA by Soles4Souls, as the results of MBA’s Council of Professional Women in Banking and Finance 2014 Philanthropy Initiative Used Shoe Drive, which raised 63,270 pairs of used shoes.   These used shoes were in-turn donated to Soles4Souls’ to support their micro-enterprise program in developing counties such as in Haiti to help create long-term jobs.  Many of the micro-enterprise operators in Haiti are women, and these jobs allow them to send their children to school, put food on the table each day and improve the lives of their families.  Recently, four MBA women had the opportunity to travel with Soles4Souls to distribute new shoes to the children in Haiti.

Along with the MBA and M&T Bank, a total of 13 Baltimore companies were honored by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as winners of the 2014 Mayor’s Business Recognition Awards for outstanding community services. Other MBA member banks that were honored were PNC Bank, N.A. and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A
