Patapsco Bank will honor the American flag and thank its customers for their continued support when it holds Customer Appreciation Day on June 14 at all four of its branches.
Bank clients who visit a branch on Flag Day can enjoy baked treats and will receive a free American flag, according to a statement from the bank.
Flag Day, celebrated on June 14, commemorates the adoption of the U.S. flag by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777.
"What a perfect time to celebrate a great piece of history and say 'thank you' to our customers and friends too," bank President Michael J. Dee said in a statement.
Bank employees will also use the day to raise money for the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County—long a pet project of Patapsco Bank.
"Each employee who donates $5 can wear blue jeans or (patriotic) casual clothes for the day," Senior Vice President Jeanne Kelly-Rieken said in the statement.
The philanthropic effort is "another great way to show our support for friends and neighbors while honoring Flag Day," Kelly-Rieken said.
The Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County is a private non-profit agency whose mission is to provide comprehensive services for those experiencing family conflict and to provide understanding and consultation for the community at large, according to the statement.
The Center provides a “safe shelter” for family members who must leave their homes, children’s programs, a crisis hotline and other services.
