PenAir Employees Donate $5,000 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida #JeansForCommunerosity Program

Pensacola, Fla. (December 21, 2021) – The employees of PenAir Federal Credit Union presented $5,000 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida on Friday, December 10, 2021. The Ronald McDonald House strives to be the best home-away-from-home for families who travel to Pensacola to receive critical medical treatment for their children.

“We love to support the efforts of the Ronald McDonald House in any and every way possible,” says Jamie Randle, Senior Financial Analyst and Communerosity Co-chair. “Giving this check is just one small way that we can help such an amazing organization. Our employees have also sponsored house cleaning days, made dinners during the week, and breakfast on the weekends along with collecting pop tabs throughout the year.  It’s safe to say that the employees of PenAir love the Ronald McDonald House.”

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.

“PenAir employees have supported our families at Ronald McDonald House for years. They have provided not just food and shelter, but human kindness and hope,” says Summer Jimmerson, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida. “Not many organizations foster a culture of philanthropy quite like PenAir. We are forever grateful.”
