BankAnnapolis shares the wealth with local charities

BankAnnapolis may be moving in style, but it hasn't forgotten about those of lesser means.

Last week, when the bank moved its corporate headquarters to 1000 Bestgate Road, it donated old furniture - worth about $40,000 - to local charities.

Hospice of the Chesapeake in Millersville is receiving nearly $24,000 worth of items, including office cubicles, conference tables, executive desks, bookcases, sofas and chairs from the bank's reception area. Jeanne Malicki, director of administrative services for the hospice, said it will help immensely. Before the donation, a staff of 11 used two desks.

BankAnnapolis also will donate furniture to the YMCA of Central Maryland and the Calvary Temple.
