The holiday season is a time for friends, family and presents. At BURKE, we believe it’s also a time for giving back, one of our values we hold dearly. We know others in our community aren’t as fortunate, and we’re grateful we’re in a position to assist them.
BURKE and A Big Heart foundation have teamed up with Toys for Tots to host an annual golf tournament the past 8 years. This year, we were able to raise over $30,000, which was used entirely for the children of Toys for Tots and Hope Haven. It was extra special this year because we invited a group of kids from Hope Haven to meet us at Toys & Co for a shopping spree. We loved seeing the children picking out their gifts and watching the expression of joy on their little faces.
BURKE actively gives back to the Charlotte community; not only with Toys for Tots, but also with The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Boy Scouts of American, The Charlotte Touchdown Club, Servants with a Heart, Charlotte Trolley, Autism Society of North Carolina, YWCA Central Carolinas, and the Carolina Raptor Center.
There is no better feeling than to give back and see the hard work and money donated go towards those who really need it! We’re already thinking of additional ways to give back to our community in the new year.
