PenAir Employees Donate $10,000 to Local Nonprofits Through #JeansForCommunerosity Program

Pensacola, FLA. (June 24, 2021) – The employees of PenAir Federal Credit Union presented a total of $10,000 to two local nonprofits during the second quarter of the year. Council on Aging of Northwest Florida, Inc. and Gulf Coast Kids House each received a gift of $5,000 to enhance the lives of the people they serve.

PenAir’s Jeans for Communerosity (J4C) program is an employee-driven fundraising effort to give back to those in need in the community.  Each year, employees nominate and vote for local nonprofit organizations to be recipients of this philanthropic program. Funds are raised through payroll deductions, J4C days, and J4C t-shirt sales. PenAir matches employee contributions and divides them equally among the ten selected charities for the year. Through J4C, PenAir employees have given more than $340,000 since the program began in 2013. By the end of 2021, more than $390,000 will be given back to help make an impact in the communities we serve.
