FNB’s Jeans project supports charities

Employees of The FNB Community Bank wearing jeans on Fridays raised $7,930 for area charities in 2020.
Launched in November 2012 as Jeans for Charity, employees pay $10 each month to wear jeans on Fridays and also select a different charitable effort to receive those funds. Since its inception, FNB’s Jeans for Charity has raised $66,360. Recipients in 2020 were:

November – Vandalia Senior Center, Meals on Wheels program
December – Patoka Christmas Angel Fund, purchase of gifts for children
“COVID-19 has been challenging for many people and organizations in 2020, leading to the cancelation of most fundraising events,” said Abby Rogers, Jeans for Charity coordinator.
“Thankfully, our FNB employees were able to step up and provide help to some good, diverse projects.”
Mike Radliff, president of The FNB Community Bank, said “How amazing it is to work with so many at The FNB who contribute a portion of their own pay to support our communities. This program instituted less than 10 years ago has done so much good every month. It’s truly inspiring.”
