History of
Warm Hearts

Columbia Bank’s Warm Hearts Winter Drive was launched on December 1, 2015, to help benefit homeless shelters in local communities across the Northwest. The program rallied local communities to make cash donations and provide new warm winter wear, including gloves, scarves, coats, socks, shoes, mittens and hats for adults and children at any Columbia Bank location. It was an instant success, raising $130,000 in the first 30 days.

To date, through generous donations from our clients, employees and friends in our communities, we’ve raised over $841,000. This year, we’ve set our annual fundraising goal at $250,000 to surpass raising over $1,000,000 in five years for our shelter partners.
