CLEARFIELD – CNB Bank employees dressed in casual attire on five, different occasions throughout the year in exchange for a donation to a designated charitable organization.
Collectively, the program, now in its sixth year, raised more than $4,600 in 2014. The funds were donated to the Autism Society, American Cancer Society, Disabled American Veterans, the Children’s Miracle Network and Toys for Tots.
Each “Casual for a Cause” day had a different theme, including Sports Day, Paint Your Town Purple, USA Day, Western Day and Harvest Day. Bank staffers enthusiastically participated in each occasion.
“This program is a win-win for the dedicated men and women who work in our offices,” explained Joseph B. Bower Jr., president and chief executive officer of CNB Bank.
“They get a chance to dress comfortably in jeans and casual shirts while raising money for organizations that matter to them. It’s a program our people enjoy participating in and we are proud of the results.”
The Human Resources department has already announced five “Casual for a Cause” dates and recipient charities for 2015. “We’re hoping to raise even more in donations and awareness,” stated Bower.
