Bernick's has a proud tradition of supporting the communities in which we serve by supporting organizations that reflect the family’s core values, while providing leadership in responding to emerging community needs. In addition to the Company's direct support, many of our Team Members volunteer their time and talents with schools, civic groups, non-profit organizations, youth groups and local elected boards.

SUCCESS STARTS AND ENDS WITH A STRONG COMMUNITY

We’re lucky. We’ve been embraced by dozens of great communities. These communities have helped us become the company we are today. Strong communities build strong businesses…and vice versa. So, we’re committed to keeping the communities we serve great places to live, work, and grow.

Our team members volunteer their time with schools, civic groups, non-profit organization, and youth groups. We serve on boards and stay involved with the Chamber of Commerce. We support initiatives like Youth Education and Health & Wellness. We offer scholarships to area high school students.
