Giving Back: PenAir Credit Union Names 2024 Jeans for Communerosity® Charities

Pensacola, Florida (March 5, 2024) PenAir Credit Union (PenAir) proudly announces the selection of its 2024 Jeans For Communerosity® charities.

Jeans for Communerosity® (J4C) is an inspiring, employee-led initiative, dedicated to supporting those in need within the communities served by PenAir. Since its inception in 2013, J4C has been a beacon of generosity, with PenAir employees contributing more than $450,000 in support of local nonprofits.

“Communerosity® is not just a word, but a deeply ingrained value at PenAir that our employees exemplify each day,” remarked PenAir President and CEO, Lee Morgan. “We take great pride in our collective efforts to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our neighbors.”

Every year, PenAir employees nominate deserving, local non-profit organizations to be considered for support through this philanthropic program. Funds are raised through payroll deductions and designated J4C days. PenAir Credit Union matches the funds raised by employees and the annual total collected, approximately $50,000 per year, is equally distributed among the selected charities for the year.

The 2024 J4C charities are:

  • Penelope House
  • Gulf Coast Kid’s House
  • Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida
  • Studer Family Children’s Hospital Autism Center
  • NWFL Guardian Ad Litem Foundation
  • End Of Watch Foundation
  • Buckaroo Foundation
  • The Haven of Our Lady of Peace Nursing Home

These selected charities reflect PenAir’s commitment to fostering stronger communities through initiatives focusing on financial literacy, health, human services, local chambers, and community building.
