Revity Credit Union employees joined together to raise $1,065 in the month of June to benefit Alton Pride through their Smile for Jeans Program.
The Smile for Jeans Program is funded by Revity Credit Union employees who make monthly, monetary donations out of their own pockets to a local organization. By donating $15 or more to a specific organization, Revity employees are able to wear jeans and tennis shoes on Fridays and Saturdays during that month.
“Nothing gets better than seeing a smile on an organization’s face when Revity Credit Union presents them with a jeans donation check. Revity Credit Union’s 2023 Smile for Jeans Program focuses on supporting our local communities that we work, play and live in. During the month of June, Revity employees proudly raised $1,065 for Alton Pride,” noted Revity Credit Union Community Relations Representative Candice Greene in an official statement.
“Alton Pride is a charitable and educational organization established to bring awareness, understanding and advocacy to the LGBTQ+ community with an emphasis on the specific needs of youth, POC, homeless and the mentally ill. Revity Credit Union’s donation granted us an invitation to the Alton Pride Festival on Saturday, September 9, 2023, on Belle Street in downtown Alton. We are excited to be a part of the fun this year!” Greene further noted.
