Thank You for Sharing the Warmth

Thank You for Sharing the Warmth Alexandria, VA – Thanks to the generosity of our customers, friends and staff, Burke & Herbert Bank's 2013 "Share the Warmth" Coat Drive was a big success. The Bank collected thousands of gently used coats during the December drive, which was co-sponsored by Burke & Herbert Bank, NBC4, the Salvation Army and Bergmann's Cleaners.

Thank you to all who donated! The Salvation Army has already started to distribute the coats to our neighbors in need.

Burke & Herbert Bank would also like to thank our Facebook fans for contributing to the success of our "Share the Warmth" drive on Social Media. In addition to the coat collections at our 25 branches in December, the Bank pledged to donate $2 to the Salvation Army's Alexandria (VA) Citadel Corps for every Facebook "Share" of our coat drive appeal. Many "shared" - and the Bank has donated $250 to the Citadel Corps, which is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty through career training, by teaching life skills and by providing spiritual support.

Thank you again for your generous support in helping us Share the Warmth.
