Community Bank of the Chesapeake recently announced its support for the Rappahannock Area YMCA in their efforts to build healthy children, adults, families and communities. The Bank has donated $15,000 to the help the organization continue to advance its mission.
"The YMCA creates an environment where people of all ages can come together and improve their minds, bodies and spirits. Their presence enriches and strengthens the community each day. Community Bank is proud to show our support for the work that they do," said Michael Middleton, Executive Chairman of the Board for Community Bank of the Chesapeake.
The Rappahannock YMCA oversees the operation of four locations throughout the Rappahannock watershed region, with plans to open a fifth location in North Stafford in 2015. The Y offers fitness and wellness programs for children and adults of all ages and abilities and hosts many community events throughout the year. The Bank's donation will help underwrite several of these events at the King George YMCA, Rosner Family YMCA, Caroline Family YMCA and the Louis B. Massad Family YMCA.
Representatives from the Rappahannock Area YMCA and Board of Directors accept the donation

"These events will be able to generate the necessary revenues to fund the YMCA's Financial Assistance program," said Bernard Reiley, Chief Executive Officer of the Rappahannock Area YMCA. "This program allows for individuals and families to become members of the YMCA who otherwise could not afford membership. Because of Community Bank of the Chesapeake's generous gift to the YMCA, more people will be served who otherwise would not have had an option to pursue their health and wellness goals."
