North Shore Bank's Weekly Jeans Day Program Raises Over $30K for Non-Profits

PEABODY, MA — ( — In 2015 North Shore Bank instituted a weekly jeans day program whose main purpose was to raise money for local non-profit organizations and charities. In exchange for $5 each week, employees are allowed to wear jeans to work while the funds collected are pooled for the month and then donated to an area charity nominated by the employees. Since its inception, the bank has raised over $30,000 which benefited 21 organizations throughout the North Shore and Merrimack Valley.

Reflecting on the effort, North Shore Bank President and COO, Kevin Tierney, related:

 “Jeans Day has certainly exceeded our expectations and it’s proven to be a wonderful morale builder for our employees.” He went on to state, “Whether suggesting potential recipients, collecting contributions or just raising awareness with our customers, it’s heartening to see their commitment to the community and how they’ve taken ownership of the program — participation rates have been high throughout the bank and the dollars raised speaks to this fact.”

Proceeds from the program have benefited organizations such as DanversCARES, Northeast Arc, Citizens Inn, the Merrimac Senior Center, Haven from Hunger, and so many more. 

Heading into its third year the good news for area non-profits is that the program will continue indefinitely. With an ever expanding list of area non-profits recipients and an enthusiastic, denim-clad employee-base, Friday Jeans Days are here to stay at North Shore Bank.
