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. Every year Bernick's awards over $150,000 in grants back to the communities we serve. Here are some of the main organizations we support through the Bernick Family Foundation:
