March 27, 2017 - fall Denim

Thanks to United Way of Southern West Virginia, employees around a segment can wear their favorite jeans to work for adult to one week this April.

During a “Denim for a Difference” open fundraiser from Apr 3-7, participating businesses will concede employees to wear jeans to work for a tiny concession to United Way.

Kacy Burgess, United Way assistant, pronounced Monday that around 20 area businesses have already registered.

For a $5 donation, employees can wear jeans to work for one day. A $10 present nets 3 days of denim, and critical jeans lovers might present $15 to competition dungarees for a week.

“It’s a fun event, generally for people that aren’t authorised to wear jeans in their workplace,” Burgess said. “Then, all of a income comes behind to United Way, and that goes to a agencies.”

Burgess pronounced a Beckley Dream Center, Women’s Resource Center, Catholic Charities, Hospice of Southern West Virginia and Pine Haven Homeless Shelters are a few of a 45 agencies among UWSWV’s 7 use counties that accept appropriation from United Way.

To participate, agencies might collect a income from employees and spin it over to United Way, or they might rigourously register by contacting Burgess during 304-253-2111 for sign-up forms sent around email, mail or fax, pronounced Burgess.

Registered businesses will get badges for participating employees to wear, she added.
