MHV announced today that its employees donated $13,593 to local non-profits in 2019 through its Jeans for Charity program.
Jeans for Charity is an employee-led program that permits staff to wear jeans on Fridays by purchasing a jeans pass. All of the funds raised from these passes are then donated to various local non-profits throughout the year.
In 2019, recipients included:
- Global to Local
- Team Nora Cancer Charity
- You Are Beautiful People (Beautiful People)
- Town of Wallkill Boys & Girls Club
- Teen Closet at Poughkeepsie High School
- Cerebral Palsy of Ulster County
MHV’s Jeans for Charity program launched in 2008 as a way for staff to directly contribute to local organizations. As the credit union’s ties to its fellow non-profits have deepened, its staff has ramped up their participation in the program.
SVP and Chief Retail Officer Christopher Gomez recognizes employees’ efforts. “It's incredibly exciting to see our staff embracing our commitment to the communities we serve. The Jeans for Charity program, while an organization-wide initiative, is really driven by each employee's dedication to making it successful."
