North Shore Bank Employees Raise Money for North Shore Habitat for Humanity

NSB Employees Raise Money for North Shore Habitat for Humanity

In September, North Shore Bank employees raised $1,137 to benefit the North Shore Habitat for Humanity, an organization whose mission is to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. The proceeds were given by bank employees through their weekly “Jeans Day” program, which was started in 2015 and has contributed over $55,000 to local charities and non-profits. In exchange for $5 each week, the bank’s staff is allowed to wear jeans to work on Fridays with the funds collected, pooled, and then donated to an area charity nominated by a bank employee.

Alexander Gostanian, a Senior Commercial Credit Analyst for North Shore Bank, who also serves as Treasurer and as a member of the North Shore Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors, recommended the organization as the recipient of their September Jeans Day dollars and said:

“I was first exposed to Habitat during a service day with a previous employer. The work we did that day stuck with me and has been something that I’ve often thought about.” He continued, “When the opportunity came up to join the North Shore affiliate as their treasurer, I jumped at the chance. Being able to get involved in the community that I work in is incredibly important and I’m proud to be working for an organization that impacts the lives of those people who need it most.” 

Don Preston, Executive Director for the North Shore Habitat for Humanity said:

“Habitat-North Shore is deeply appreciative of the support North Shore Bank has provided over the years. This donation will go a long way towards paying for some of the skilled services we need to purchase for every home we build.”

Gary Cowles, North Shore Bank Board of Director and long-time Habitat for Humanity volunteer said:

“Thanks to the employees of North Shore Bank, we can continue with our mission of providing safe, affordable housing to needy families”.
