The tradition of giving continues this season at Heartland Bank. This year’s Holiday Party, held Saturday, December 15th at the Jefferson Country Club, market the 16th Annual Silent Auction where employees had the opportunity to bid on items with proceeds going to benefit several local organizations.
Heartland Employees Support Local Organizations at Heartland’s Annual Silent Auction
This year 11 area organizations benefitted from the generosity of Heartland Bank staff at the Silent Auction. As Central Ohio’s Community Bank, Heartland has a tradition of giving back to the communities in which we serve and during this holiday season, we cannot think of a more appropriate time to give back to the communities we serve.
Each Heartland Bank office selected a charitable organization in their market as the recipient of funds through the auction of items donated by loyal clients and area philanthropists. Through the generosity and teamwork of clients, employees and area businesses, over $6,000 was raised at this year’s party.

We received this letter from WARM (Westerville Area Resource Ministry) as a follow-up to our donation and thanking the bank for our partnership.
