TYSONS CORNER, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cardinal Bank (NASDAQ: CFNL) announced today that the Cardinal Community Fund and George Mason Mortgage, LLC, have awarded $10,000 to HomeAid Northern Virginia. Founded in 2001 by members of the Northern Virginia Builders Industry Association, HomeAid has built and renovated 99 homes and shelter facilities, valued at more than $12.6 million, for more than 72,000 homeless families and individuals in Northern Virginia. HomeAid enables families and individuals to get back on the road to self-sufficiency, helping them break the cycle of homelessness and rebuild their lives. Earlier this year, the Cardinal Community Fund awarded a grant to Women Giving Back, a program then operated by HomeAid Northern Virginia, which provides clothing to women and children living in the shelter community.
Cardinal Chief Credit Officer Christopher Bergstrom, Cardinal Senior Vice President and HomeAid Board Member Jason McDonough, and George Mason Mortgage Executive Vice President Matt Fox, presented the check to HomeAid Executive Director Christy Eaton, HomeAid President of the Board of Directors Brian Davidson (Van Metre Companies), and HomeAid Communications and Special Events Manager Faith Boruta.
“The impact of homelessness can be devastating, having long-lasting and far-reaching negative consequences for families and communities,” said Christopher W. Bergstrom, Chief Credit Officer, Cardinal Bank. “With six of the top ten wealthiest counties in the United States located in Cardinal Bank’s backyard, it is humbling to consider that there is such a need for HomeAid. It is rewarding to know that our donation will support the mission of HomeAid to provide quality housing and other critical resources for the homeless clients they serve in Northern Virginia.”
Cardinal Bank and George Mason Mortgage employees donate generously of their time, talent and treasure to community organizations throughout the region. The Cardinal Community Fund is the philanthropic arm of the corporation, and has benefited more than 250 local organizations and service programs since its inception, keeping sight of the Fund’s mission and deep commitment to giving back to the communities where we live, work, and raise our families.
