The money was raised during one of the bank’s ‘Jeans Day’, in which bank staff make a small donation for the privilege of trading pinstripes for blue jeans.On Jeans Day on September 2nd, the usual $5donation was waived in favor of a ‘free’ jeans day, with the bank encouraging those employees who could to donate whatever they wanted with the promise of matching funds from RNB. Staffers from across the bank’s network of eight offices stepped up to the challenge to collect the $1,300.In addition to making the cash donations, bank employees gave generously with time, supplies and money to their communities and neighbors.The funds were split between the following organizations: Operation Revive Royalton FundBethel Volunteer Fire DepartmentRochester Volunteer Fire DepartmentStockbridge Volunteer Fire DepartmentPittsfield Volunteer Fire DepartmentRandolph Volunteer Fire Department About Randolph National BankOriginally chartered as The National Bank of West Randolph in 1875, Randolph National Bank has continued to grow and prosper and today holds assets in excess of $160 million and provides services through eight banking offices and nine ATMs. Headquartered in Randolph, RNB also maintains offices in the communities of Rochester, Royalton, South Royalton, Williamstown and Quechee, with the mission of meeting the credit and deposit needs of individuals and businesses in the White River Valley. www.rnbvt.com(link is external)last_img read more
