At Chesapeake, we care, we connect and we grow. With the holidays on the horizon, we want to take time to show our gratitude for the blessings we have and to lend support to our community. Help make Thanksgiving a time of warmth and happiness this holiday season, and join us by participating in our third annual Chesapeake Cares Holiday Program.
The Chesapeake family is partnering with the Food Bank of Delaware to create and distribute Thanksgiving care packages to families in the Delaware community.
