Verity Commercial Agrees with Cornerstones that “No One Should Go Without a Coat”

This winter Verity contributed to Hunter Mill District’s Winter Coat Closet through its continued service to Cornerstones. Our team members donated coats, hats, gloves, and scarves in order to provide warmth for local individuals and families in need during the cold, winter season. A testimonial on behalf of the Hunter Mill District office and Cornerstones reported over 5,00 coats and 1,300 winter accessories were distributed so far, which makes us very pleased to have been able to contribute to this wonderful community drive.


As stated by Ken Traenkle, Verity’s Co-Founder, “The holiday and winter season give us a great deal to be grateful for, but also an opportunity to give back. Therefore, at Verity, we commit ourselves to supporting and participating in local community service, and I am proud to observe a passion for volunteerism in each of our team members. Such enthusiasm and participation in these events are what make not only our local community stronger but our Verity collective stronger as well.”


The last coat distribution day was held on March 11. If you are interested in supporting the community, we encourage you to learn more ways to get involved with Cornerstones or donating to support their various needs.
