The New Year brings the announcement of our 2018 Jeans for Communerosity Charities! We are excited to share that the following charities will each receive a gift of $5,000, along with a commitment to serve the charity through volunteer opportunities to further their missions.
Jeans for Communerosity (J4C) is an employee-driven fundraising effort to enhance lives in our community. Each year, our employees nominate local, non-profit organizations to be voted on as recipients of this philanthropic program. Funds are raised through payroll deductions and Jeans for Communerosity days. The funds raised by the employees are matched by Pen Air and divided equally among the voted charities for the year.
Through J4C, the employees have given more than $200,000 since the program began in 2013. By the end of 2018, more than $240,000 will be given back to make a difference. Communerosity is a core value at Pen Air our employees truly live every day. We’re proud to say that $120,000 of those funds came directly from the pockets of our employees.
Together, we’re enhancing lives in our local community.
