American Bank’s employees contributed $776 to Communities in Schools of the Coastal Bend with the reward of wearing jeans to work on Friday, April 6, 2018. The Bank matched the employees’ contributions, bringing the total donated to $1,552. Communities in Schools will use the funds for their “Walk the Stage” program, allowing 30 high school students to purchase their required cap and gown for graduation.
About the Program
The American Bank Wears Jeans for a Cause program is designed to raise awareness and money for various
non-profit organizations. Each month, American Bank highlights a different non-profit organization, chosen by employees, from one of its market areas. Employees who choose to make a donation to the organization may wear jeans on the designated American Bank Wears Jeans for a Cause day. The bank then matches the employee contributions dollar for dollar. Those donating wear a special sticker to recognize their participation.
