Crest Savings Bank was proud to contribute to the welcoming of the Fifth Coast Guard District's newest fast response cutter, the USCGC Angela McShan. The bank's donation helped with the planning of the ship's commissioning ceremony, which was held on Oct.26 in Cape May.

"We are grateful for the privilege to call our home-county a Coast Guard community," said Crest Savings Bank in a release. "This sentiment was also the reason why the bank enthusiastically stepped in last January, by implementing an innovative short-term loan program following the federal government shutdown."

"The program was designed to help Coast Guard families keep up with their monthly bills during a challenging time when their income was interrupted. At Crest Savings Bank, we feel it is important to give back to our community and to live by our mantra, 'Banking is what we do. Community is who we are.'
