WALDORF, Md., July 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Community Bank of the Chesapeake is proud to announce its support of the Southern Maryland Mission of Mercy. Through its sponsorship, the Bank will help to provide funding for the two-day dental clinic planned for July.
"We are pleased to support the Southern Maryland Mission of Mercy," said Michael Middleton, Executive Chairman of the Board for Community Bank of the Chesapeake. "This organization is committed to improving the health of our community and we are proud to play a role in advancing their mission," said Middleton.
The Southern Maryland Mission of Mercy is part of a national initiative to improve the dental health of those without insurance by holding free two-day dental clinics. The clinics provide services ranging from preventative dentistry and cleanings to restorative fillings and extractions. This year's clinic is scheduled for July 18 and 19 and will be held at North Point High School in Charles County. The donation made by Community Bank will allow Mission of Mercy to provide $41,000 worth of dental work to patients in need.
"On behalf of the Southern Maryland Mission of Mercy, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the generous contribution from Community Bank of the Chesapeake," said Dr. Garner Morgan and Mission of Mercy volunteer. "For every dollar donated, we are able to turn that into $17.00 worth of treatment. In 2012, at our first Mission of Mercy, we were able to treat over 650 well deserving patients. This July, we feel that number will be between 800 and 900 people. None of this would be possible without the support of our community."
