Community Bank N.A. branches across Western and Central New York and the Finger Lakes region recently joined together to raise funds for the Red Cross to support victims of Hurricane Harvey.

During September, the 63 participating branches held “Jeans Fridays” initiatives, asking employees to donate to the cause for the option to wear jeans. Additionally, branches held fundraisers, such as bake sales, to raise money.

Branches in Chautauqua County donated $115, contributing to the grand total of $9,995 raised by the 63 branches.

“It’s truly amazing to see the impact that can be made when small efforts come together as a team,” Community Bank N.A. Regional Manager Eric Garvin said. “Supporting those in need is a fundamental part of our values at Community Bank N.A., and I am extremely proud of all the branches that contributed to this effort to help strangers in need.”

Participating branches in Chautauqua County included Dunkirk Central and Vineyard, Falconer, Jamestown Main and Brooklyn, Lakewood, Sherman, Silvercreek and Westfield.
