Severn Savings Bank today announced that Nicole Donegan, vice president of marketing and communications, has been elected to serve on the Board of the YWCA of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County effective November 2012.
The national mission of the YWCA is eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. The local chapter, the YWCA of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County, targets its efforts on assisting victims of domestic violence. They operate Arden House, the only safe house in Anne Arundel County for victims of domestic violence and their children as well as providing hotlines, counseling, legal and intervention services among many other programs.
“The YWCA of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County plays a vital role in our community. Domestic violence is such a difficult topic to address and yet it is so prevalent, with the organization serving over 10,000 individuals annually” said Ms. Donegan. “I’m honored to be invited to participate in a leadership role with this organization and am looking forward to assisting the incredible staff in continuing their efforts.”
“We are excited to have Ms. Donegan join the Board because of her long standing commitment to community engagement and specifically the role she has played in both connecting and supporting numerous nonprofits locally. Her personal compassion for the needs of those in crisis as well as the incredible skill set she has in communications will help build on the strong foundation of the YWCA in being widely recognized in the community, and we are excited to continue our long-standing relationship with Severn Savings Bank,” said Molly Knipe, Executive Director of the YWCA of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County.
