2020 Community Commitment Awards Submission

  • Entry Category: Volunteerism
  • Asset Size: Small

Take The Day On is a project that was formed as a result of our in-house Leadership Institute. We were placed in groups and were prompted to develop an idea for a new community involvement activity. We are Wil, Maria, and Shayne and this was our group's idea: Take the Day On is a call to action for CNB employees to use a day they would normally have off (Martin Luther King, Jr Day) to give back to their community and participate in a community involvement event of their choice. It will be a large-scale coordinated effort that will allow for employees in every position in all four market areas to volunteer for a cause that is most important to them. Instead of taking the day off work, we encouraged employees to Take the Day On and make a conscious effort to spend MLK Jr. Day volunteering. We operate as 4 divisions and a subsidiary in 3 states (Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York) and have never had a community involvement event span our entire footprint. We chose Martin Luther King Jr. Day as the day for this project because of the existing National Day of Community Service on this holiday. We wanted CNB to join the collective story of community involvement across the nation. Links:
