Arvest's jeans days in parts of Arkansas raised nearly $46,000 for non-profit organizations.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arvest Bank associates in Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley raised $45,739.47 through participation in “Jeans Days” in 2014 for various charities. 

Arvest Bank branches participate in the “Jeans Days” program, either weekly, monthly or periodically throughout the year. Each associate gives a donation, usually between $2 and $5, to wear jeans to work on the designated days. Those funds are collected and donated throughout the year to more than 40 charities.

“Arvest Bank is a community-focused bank and our associates are always looking for a way to help,” said Mike Willard, President and CEO of Arvest Bank in Prairie Grove. “By participating in the Jeans Days, we can have a casual business day at the office while helping our communities.”

Charities are selected based on associate and customer nominations. Among the many local charities receiving donations for 2014 were NWA Free Health Center, Children’s Safety Center, Medi-Home Christmas gifts, Peace at Home Family Shelter, Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter, Ronald McDonald Room at Mercy Health Center, and United Way.

Arvest Bank associates have been participating in the “Jeans Days” donations since 1992.
