Community Jeans Day is an employee program that spans bank-wide and benefits local organizations within the Bank’s footprint. Employees of the Bank are encouraged to donate each month and in return, are permitted to wear jeans on Fridays. All money raised goes back into the community through gifting to local, non-profit organizations. Since the start of the program in late 2012, employees have raised over $37,500.
