Huron Valley State Bank Raises $1,600
From Employee Driven Casual For A Cause
Once a month, Huron Valley State Bank holds a special Casual for a Cause (Jean’s Day). This program allows employees to wear jeans in exchange for providing a donation for the designated charitable need. The causes are either for an individual in need or a large-scale community program. In 2019, the Casual for A Cause program raised over $1,600.
“At Huron Valley State Bank our mission is to make a difference in the community and supporting worthy causes is one way we carry out that mission. This is all made possibly by the generosity of our employees,” said Sheri Miles, Marketing Director. The Casual for a Cause days are typically offered the last Friday of every month. There were a couple of instances when the bank added a second Jean’s Day due to a strong need that came up within the month. The program assists both internal Huron Valley State Bank efforts, such as special collections for partner elementary schools, food drives during the holidays, as well as several private individuals in need or community organizations.
“Casual for a Cause is a unique program that allows us to give back to the community. I am pleased to have such considerate and giving employees that give us the privilege of helping those in need. Huron Valley State Bank is proud to help raise funds for so many deserving causes, and we would not be able to do so without all of hard work and effort that our committee has poured into this program,” said Jack Shubitowski, President and CEO of Huron Valley State Bank.
In 2019, the bank gave to a combination of causes including: Huron Valley Optimist Club, Horses Haven, Five Points of Hope, Aging Paws, Freedom Works, AM VETS Post 2006, Truck Ministries, Western Oakland Meals, Community Sharing, Snow pants for Schools, Red Box, and a couple of private individuals in need.
