Denim For Dollars

We Dress Down To Raise Others Up

Denim for Dollars is a fundraising effort led by staff members in which employees who choose to participate donate a minimum amount each City payday to wear jeans. Employees select one of three causes they would like to support — First Responders, Social Outreach or Animal Wellness. The funds are then donated to different organizations within our community.

Since 2015, Beach Municipal FCU and our members have donated more than $24,783 to our Denim For Dollars recipients.

During the previous quarter, our employees elected to send their contributions to the following organizations:

The VBCPS Back-to-School Care Fair is an event held in August where 6,000 people meet community members and learn about educational programs.  Backpacks, haircuts, and dental screenings are a few of the resources available to families who attend.

In 2023, additional highlights of the event included:

  • 1,500 beach bags non-perishable food distributed by Virginia Beach Education Foundation
  • 121 partner and VBCPS exhibitors
  • Nine school buses deployed to bring families to the event by VBCPS Transportation Services
  • One Monster Fire Truck from Virginia Beach Fire Department
  • Hundreds of ident-a-kid kits by Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office
  • Dozens of volunteers, including staff and students

Our Mission is to create a more humane and responsible community by eliminating animal suffering while increasing human compassion.

We provide shelter and care to approximately 2,600 homeless companion animals each year. We implement every available option to ensure that healthy and treatable animals in our care have a pathway to adoption, while also providing community resources to help keep pets in homes.
