Community Business Bank's ‘Casual Fridays' Results in Generous Donations to Local Food Banks

Community Business Bank's ‘Casual Fridays' Results in Generous Donations to Local Food Banks

Community Business Bank employees are busy collecting thousands of pounds of food to donate to local food banks as part of a year-round giving campaign called "Food Bank Fridays." The campaign started a few years ago when Community Business Bank employees requested permission to dress casually on Fridays.  While management could have simply allowed jeans to be worn at work, the request for “casual Fridays” turned into a light bulb moment.

“Our management team and the bank’s Community Foundation Committee agreed to the idea with one stipulation: Employees can dress casually on Fridays as long as they bring in at least one item to benefit local food banks,” said John DiMichele, CEO, Community Business Bank.

Parents line up to enroll children into kindergarten


What appeared to be a line for a free giveaway was actually a line for kindergarten registration.

Dozens of parents camped overnight outside of Bridgeway Island Elementary School in West Sacramento on Friday, trying to secure a spot for the school's highly sought after kindergarten programs.

"My husband came out here, bless his heart, at 4 a.m. My mom relieved him; and then I came out here at about 7 a.m.," explained Carolina Castillo, who woke up early to sign up her child for kindergarten.

Transitional kinder and kindergarten registration started Saturday at 9 a.m. but anxious parents weren't willing to chance it.

Many parents braved the overnight and early morning chilly temperatures.

"I was super nervous about it. Everyone is stressed," Castillo explained. "I have the paperwork done and on time."
