EDSI Raises $6,200 in Charitable Donations Through Corporate Jeans Day Program in 2018
3 Cheers for Jeans Day! During the last two Fridays of each month, employees are invited to wear jeans for a minimum $5 donation. Many employees look forward to dressing down and supporting worthy charities in the process. Employees throughout the company are encouraged to make suggestions on which organizations to support and the Dearborn Office's Executive Assistant keeps a list, ensuring each one is included throughout the year. In 2018, EDSI donated $6,200 to these 12 charities, including:
Kids Making It
National Kidney Foundation
Options for Women
Dreams for Kids
American Diabetes Association
National Ovarian Cancer Coalition
Cape Fear Volunteer Center
Harrisburg Inspiring Connections Outdoors
Quality Health Africa
In 2019, 12 more worthy charities will benefit from the generosity of our employees who participate in the Jeans Day program.
