BOONSBORO --Â Beginning in July 2008, the Hagerstown Trust Division of The Columbia Bank began to offer bulk coin counting, installing new self-serve machines in each branch location.
Customers can bring in their loose mixed change in any amount, and pour it into the machine, which sorts and counts the coins. The machine provides the customer with a receipt that can be taken to the teller, who will provide the cash to the customer or deposit it into a Columbia Bank account.
The fee for the use of this machine is 6 percent, and all of the proceeds are donated to a different local charity each month.
Hagerstown Trust Co. opened its doors in Washington County in 1933. It merged with The Columbia Bank, another member of the Fulton Financial Family, on Sept. 11, to form a strong financial service provider statewide. The Columbia Bank -- Hagerstown Trust Division operates 11 banking offices and 14 ATMs in Washington County, and a loan production office in Franklin County, Pa.
