Boiling Springs Savings Bank Hosts "Jeans Day" to Support Hurricane Florence Relief - November 5, 2018
Employees joined together in jeans and resolve to support fellow bankers, in North Carolina and South Carolina, impacted by Hurricane Florence. Individual donations, some denim and a corporate contribution tallied a $2,000 donation from Boiling Springs and its employees to the North Carolina Bankers Association Hurricane Florence Relief Fund.
Boiling Springs Savings Bank, one of northern New Jersey’s largest savings banks and provider of financial services to individuals and businesses for nearly 80 years, held “Jeans Day” on October 5 to raise money for those affected by Hurricane Florence. Participating employees contributed $5 to wear jeans to work; alongside a sizable donation from the bank itself, efforts resulted in a total of $2,000 in raised funds.
The donation has been presented to the North Carolina Bankers Association (NCBA) and the recently established NCBA Hurricane Florence Relief Fund. Contributions totaling $321,088 have been disbursed to bank employees in North Carolina and South Carolina who have endured damage to their homes and property as a result of the storm. Financial assistance was provided to 245 bankers from 15 banks and the aid ranged from $250 to $2,650. The NCBA Hurricane Florence Relief Fund will continue to accept donations until November 2.
“Boiling Springs is proud to assist those who experienced damage and loss due to Hurricane Florence,” said Debra Cannariato, Senior Vice President of Boiling Springs Savings Bank. “An initiative as simple as wearing jeans to work can result in powerful fundraising and demonstrated our unwavering support for those impacted by natural disaster.”
