Charity Jeans Day
In 2009, a group of employees, inspired to raise money for the organizations on the Cape they were most passionate about, created Charity Jeans Day. Every other Friday, our employees are encouraged to “wear denim for a cause” and contribute to a local nonprofit every pay period. Employees choose a different organization for each Jeans Day and contribute a minimum of $5 to wear jeans for the day. Every year, 26 local charities benefit from our employee-driven contributions. And while some organizations rotate through, some are always constant, such as our annual donation drive for Toys for Tots Stuff-a-Bus, the Salvation Army’s Dress A Live Doll, and Elder Services of Cape Cod’s Be A Santa to a Senior.
Employees of the bank have raised over $100,000 for local charities. Approximately 80% of employees participate in Charity Jeans Day and, in 2018, the Bank decided to match each Charity Jeans Day total, doubling the contribution. Here’s a list of some of the organizations that have received a donation through Charity Jeans Day:
