The Warm Hearts program benefits families and individuals suffering from homelessness across the Pacific Northwest. During the winter drive, employees at all of Columbia Bank’s nearly 150 branches collected cash donations and new winter clothing from clients and community members during the holiday season. All of the clothing and funds collected are donated each year to more than 60 local shelters and relief organizations throughout Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
The money raised in 2019, along with thousands of clothing items, will be donated to more than 60 homeless shelters and relief organizations across the Northwest. Among the benefiting organizations are Tacoma Rescue Mission, Mary’s Place, Helping Hands Reentry Outreach Centers, and Shared Housing Services.
Since the campaign launched in 2015, Columbia has raised more than $1.1 million benefiting local Northwest homeless and relief shelters.
