"Jeans Days" in Northwest Arkansas raised more than $37,000 for local non-profits.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arvest Bank associates in Northwest Arkansas raised $37,707.62 through participation in “Jeans Days” in 2015 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 happy when their small donations, multiplied across Northwest Arkansas and accumulated throughout the year, can assist local organizations,” said Karen Gray, vice president of marketing and public relations for Arvest Bank in Fayetteville. “Participating in the Jeans Days donations allows us to have a casual business day at the office while helping our neighbors.”

Charities are selected based on associate and customer nominations. Among the many local charities receiving donations for 2015 were the Miracle League of NWA, Children’s Advocacy Center, Medi-Home Christmas gifts, HOPE Cancer Resources, Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter, American Heart Association, and Siloam Springs Adult Development Center.

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