$25,500 donated to Willing Warriors!
With the Washington Capitals ending the regular season with 255 goals, we are thrilled to donate a total of $25,500 to Serve Our Willing Warriors, through the “Burke & Herbert Bank Scores for Veterans” program. For every Washington Capitals goal scored during the 2022-23 NHL regular season, Burke & Herbert Bank donated $100 to this non-profit organization that supports active duty and Veteran service members dealing with the effects of PTSD, by providing respite stays at the Warrior Retreat at Bull Run, where warriors and their families can relax, heal, spend quality time, and reconnect.
The “Burke & Herbert Bank Scores for Veterans” program marks the eighth year in a row that Burke & Herbert Bank has teamed up with NBC Sports Washington to leverage the excitement of the hockey season and the enthusiasm of Capitals on-air announcers Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin to help a deserving local non-profit organization and raise awareness about an important cause.
Thanks to the impressive on-ice performance of the high-scoring Washington Capitals, the Bank has donated over $25,000 each to Most Valuable Kids Inc. (2016), Alice’s Kids, Inc. (2017), Connect our Kids (2018), Rebuilding Together DC-Alexandria (2019), Homestretch (2020), Operation Renewed Hope (2021) and GrandInvolve (2022).
Let’s go Caps!
