When it comes to volunteering or donating to a cause or charity, we tend to believe, “What difference can one person make?” But the truth is, no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.
Chesapeake Bank and our employees encourage you to join us in supporting area nonprofits and service organizations that play an essential role in the growth and well-being of our communities. We invite you to consider one of the opportunities below.
“Habitat for Humanity makes a difference in lives. It has made a difference in my life.” — Paula Owens
Lancaster/Northumberland Habitat for Humanity
Even if you’ve never hammered a nail, you can make a difference. Habitat building supervisors will show you how to hang sheet rock, paint, build a deck, rough-in wiring and more. By volunteering, you’re offering hope and an opportunity for families in need to break the cycle of poverty by keeping home construction costs low with free labor and services. And, partner families actively participate in the process too, by investing 350 hours of their own time in helping to build their house and the homes of others.

“Our objective is to help and to serve, but if we had more room, we could help more people.” — Renae Williams
Gloucester-Mathews Free Clinic
For the last 15 years, the Free Clinic has provided quality medical and dental care, medication and health education. The need for service has grown by 480 percent since 2007. So, to provide quality healthcare to all those who need it, the Free Clinic is raising $2.5 million to expand into a larger facility that will better serve our neighbors.
