Dressing for Success by Dressing Down

Jeans for a Cause raises funds for a different organization every month

FNCB Bank, locally-based for over 100 years, recently presented representatives from Dress for Success Lackawanna with a $976.00 donation raised through a bank wide “Jeans for a Cause” dress down day in April.

The mission of Dress for Success Lackawanna is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and life. Since 1999, Dress for Success Lackawanna has provided business attire, a much-needed boost of confidence, and job retention and career advancement services to more than 6,000 women throughout six counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

FNCB’s monthly fundraising effort encourages employees to make small donations in exchange for the opportunity to wear jeans to work. All employee donations are matched dollar for dollar by the bank. Dress for Success Lackawanna was nominated by Brook Lipperini, FNCB Banking Officer, Human Resources Generalist.

“I am proud to support this organization in their mission to provide professional attire and services to women in Lackawanna County who are striving for financial independence,” said Lipperini. “A boost of confidence and some words of encouragement can make a world of difference in the lives of those who may be going through their most difficult times.”

Since launching Jeans for a Cause in 2014, FNCB employees have raised over $30,000 for local non-profit organizations.
