FNCB Bank Employees Dress Down for Ruth’s Place Women’s Shelter

Jeans for a Cause raises funds for a different organization every month

FNCB Bank, locally-based for over 100 years, recently presented representatives from Ruth’s Place Women’s Shelter in Wilkes-Barre with a $1,052.00 donation raised through a bank wide “Jeans for a Cause” dress down day in December.

Ruth’s Place, a program of Volunteers of America of Pennsylvania, is dedicated to providing shelter and case management services for women experiencing homelessness while honoring the dignity of each guest.

FNCB’s monthly fundraising effort encourages employees to make small donations in exchange for the opportunity to wear jeans to work. All employee donations are matched dollar for dollar by the bank. Ruth’s Place was nominated by Louise Balbach, FNCB Community Office Manager.

“With an ever changing economy, it is not far-fetched to become an individual depleted of all resources, including a home,” said Balbach. “An organization, giving hope, such as Ruth’s Place, can be a true life saver.”

Since launching Jeans for a Cause in 2014, FNCB employees have raised $26,643 for local non-profit organizations.
