The “American Bank Wears Jeans For a Cause” program is designed to raise awareness and money for various non-profit groups. Each month, American Bank highlights a non-profit group, and if employees choose to make a donation towards the organization, they may wear jeans on the designated “American Bank Wears Jeans For a Cause Day.” Those donating wear a special sticker to recognize their participation.
