Long Time Supporter, Patapsco Bank, Profiled

January 19, 2010

The Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County has been supported over the years by Patapsco Bank, and their employees. From holding fundraisers, to helping out the shelter during the holidays, this 100 year old Dundalk based bank has continued to support the Family Crisis Center.

The Baltimore Sun did an interesting profile on Michael Dee, president and CEO of Patapsco Bank. You can read it here.

The article talks about how Patapsco Bank gives back to the community.

The bank supports the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County with fundraising events throughout the year. Currently the staff pays $5 to wear casual clothes or Ravens attire on Fridays, with the money going into a fund for the crisis center, an employee-chosen charity.

The Family Crisis Center is gracious of Patapsco Bank’s continued support!
