A team of County Bank volunteers recently lent a hand at a Sussex County Habitat for Humanity home build in Georgetown. Led by Sussex Habitat’s AmeriCorps members, the team of volunteers insulated the foundation, built the subfloor and also presented a $2,000 donation to Sussex Habitat. County Bank encourages local community service by extending a paid volunteer day to its employees.
