Season of Sharing: Together We Made a Difference

Jay O'Brien

The 2016 Sandy Spring Bank Season of Sharing has come to an end, and we’re proud to announce that we will feed 35,000 people across Maryland, Virginia and D.C. Thank you to the hundreds of Sandy Spring Bank employees who volunteered their time and resources to various organizations across the region. You truly brought to life our guiding principles in a meaningful way. Thank you clients and social media supporters who helped our Season of Sharing efforts go even further. And thank you to our non-profit partners for the work you do every day for our communities.

During the Season of Sharing – and all year long – it is our priority to be responsive to the needs of our neighbors and the communities we serve. As your local financial partner, our goal is to provide individuals, families, businesses, shareholders and our employees the opportunity to succeed in life. Their success is our success, ultimately making a difference in the world.

Together, we accomplished a great deal for our neighbors in need.
