CNB Bank Employees Donate Over $4,000 to Charity in 'Casual for a Cause'
December 31, 2013
CNB Bank employees wore casual attire on five different occasions throughout the year in exchange for a donation to a specified charitable organization. In doing so, CNB employees raised $4,122, which was donated to the American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Make A Wish Foundation, March of Dimes, and Toys for Tots, respectively.
On February 1, 2013, the Human Resources department of CNB Bank launched the 2013 “Casual for a Cause” program and designated “Football” day to benefit the local March of Dimes. Employees were allowed to dress in jeans and sneakers with a favorite football jersey or team colors in exchange for a donation to the March of Dimes. On May 17, 2013, “Paint Your Town Purple” brought out the color purple as the staff readily made their donation to benefit the American Cancer Society. On July 5, 2013, the staff celebrated “USA” day by wearing red, white and blue to benefit the American Red Cross. On September 13, “High School/College Alma Mater” day brought out school pride to benefit the Make A Wish Foundation. And, most recently, November 8, 2013 was designated “Harvest” day and the staff wore flannel shirts and autumn colors to benefit Toys for Tots.
“The employees are always excited about a chance to dress in the comfort of jeans and sneakers,” Joe Bower, President & CEO of CNB Bank, went on to say, “By making donations to charitable organizations, the limited casual days were well-received by our customers, and of course, the employees were delighted. I’m impressed with the dollar amount that was raised by the employees for the organizations.”
Due to the positive response, Mary Ann Conaway, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, announced CNB Bank employees will be participating in similar Casual for a Cause events in 2014 which will benefit five different charities.
Mrs. Conaway said, “On each occasion we had such positive feedback from the staff – they just love it. Casual for a Cause has been a big hit for everyone involved, the employees and organizations alike.”
