ADNET Technologies announced the winners of its annual “Jeans Day for Charity” program. The “Jeans for Charity” program provides an optional alternative to the company’s traditionally business casual dress code, allowing employees to wear jeans to work.
For an annual donation of $50, employees can choose to wear jeans every day as a component of their professional attire. The annual donation has been matched by ADNET, resulting in combined donations of over $2600. Winners are selected from the charities nominated by employees throughout the year and a drawing is held at the annual end of the year team gathering.
“It’s not just about getting to wear jeans to work, it’s about everyone wanting to give back to the community and causes that they’re passionate about.” said Executive Vice President Christopher Luise. “Every year we receive dozens of nominations from our team members, with incredibly thorough descriptions of the charities they nominate and what the funds raised are used for. This helps raise awareness for these causes and gets people involved regardless of whether or not those charities are the winners of the donation.”
This year, the donations will be distributed between the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, the International Rescue Committee and Boy Scouts of America.
Since its inception in 2014, the program has raised over $6000 for various charities including The Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, and Best Buddies.
