Cape Cod Cooperative Bank Employees Wearing Denim Raise Money For Local Charities #CharityJeansDay

HYANNIS, MASSACHUSETTS, October 6, 2009… Joel G. Crowell, President of Cape Cod Cooperative Bank, is proud to announce a successful continuing campaign by the Bank’s employees to raise money for local charities. Since January 2009, Bank employees have contributed $3,926 to help twelve different local causes while being extremely comfortable at work!

“The program is a win-win for the community and our employees,” said Mr. Crowell. “Wearing their denim to work causes smiles all around. Our customers get a kick out of it, while we’re helping our local non-profits and charities stretch their marketing dollars by promoting them with branch signage throughout the Bank on ‘Jeans Day’.”

The program, coordinated by the CCCB Employee Involvement Committee, allows employees to wear denim to work on specific dates for a monetary contribution. The funds are collected in advance and forwarded to the special cause. A calendar for ‘Jeans Days’ for the year was created after a questionnaire went out to the employees asking everyone for input on their favorite charities or causes. The Bank hopes to continue to run the popular program next year to focus on even more local charities. Some customers have even chipped in to help the cause being promoted that day by the Bank.

Cape Cod Cooperative Bank employees are always looking for ways to support the community in which they live and work. They are active members within many of the charities and causes supporting their neighbors across the Cape. The Banks’ corporate policy is to support the community and encourage every employee to do so in their own way as well. This fun program allows employees to go even further in supporting the community they serve.

Cape Cod Cooperative Bank is an independent, mutual community bank with over $586 million in assets. Established in 1921, it is headquartered in Hyannis with branches on Route 6A in Yarmouth Port, East Dennis and West Barnstable, in Sandwich at 275 Cotuit Road, in Hyannis at 695 Attucks Lane in Independence Park, and in East Harwich at their most recent location 1470 Orleans Road/Route 39.
