FNCB Bank, locally-based for over 100 years, recently presented representatives from St. Hedwig’s Veterans Village with an $808.66 donation raised through a bank wide “Jeans for a Cause” dress down day in May.
Catholic Social Services renovated the former St. Hedwig’s School in Kingston into twelve apartments designed for veterans and their dependent families. 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.
“The dedication and service of our veterans has always left deep and permanent footprints on the landscape of American society. We should not, and must not, forget their sacrifices,” said Mary Theresa Vautrinot, Executive Director of Catholic Social Services. “Thank you for making these heroes one of your priorities with your donation from your dress down day.”
Since launching Jeans for a Cause in 2014, FNCB employees have raised $30,815 for local non-profit organizations.
