As 2020 comes to a close, we are especially grateful as we reflect upon our blessings. With the extra effort from our team in this unprecedented time and the loyalty of our clients, both old and new, we have been fortunate to meet our goals. This challenging year has given us the opportunity to focus on what is truly important and has called us to be especially generous to those in need who have fallen on hard times during this pandemic. As you know, charitable giving has become an integral part of our StoneBridge mission.
With your support, we are keeping more than 200 Baltimore residents warm with the numerous coats we collected through our virtual winter coat drive in conjunction with Paul’s Place. The need is greater than ever right now, so we thank you for your contributions.

Please continue to share the causes closest to your heart with us. We have formed a Charitable Committee dedicated to sharing time, treasure, and talent to well-deserving organizations. This story by Loren Eisley resonated with us and motivates us to continue giving.
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf.
Then, smiling at the man, he said.....“I made a difference for that one.”
We look forward to beginning this next chapter and as always are immensely grateful for your confidence in our team.
We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season.
