Denim Day is Wednesday, Sept. 7

Denim Day is Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Pay $1 to your Denim Day site coordinator (or to the Denim Day Committee Chair at Stop 8193 if your building does not have a site coordinator) and enjoy going casual for local non-profit organizations. If your office allows you to wear denim all the time, consider still giving $1 on Denim Days. Donations go to very good causes.  Checks, if any, must be made out to “Denim Day.”

All proceeds collected during 2016 regular Denim Days will go to the following: (1) Altru Caring for Kids program; (2) Circle of Friends Humane Society; (3) Community Violence Intervention Center – Light of Hope program; (4) Grand Forks Senior Center – Meals on Wheels program; (5) Home Delivered Meals; (6) Lutheran Social Services – Healthy Families program; (7) Mountainbrooke Recovery Center – Live Life Well recovery training program; (8) Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity; (9) Safe Kids Grand Forks; (10) St. Joseph’s Social Care and Thrift Store – Food Pantry; (11) Third Street Clinic; (12) Wings of Hope Bereavement Services.

September Spotlight: Safe Kids Grand Forks’ mission is to prevent unintentional injuries and deaths to children under the age of 19.  One program provides car seat check-up events, education, and assistance to assure that all children of this community are riding safer and protected from unintentional injuries from motor vehicle crashes.

UND Staff Senate, in conjunction with UND Work Well, encourages you to wear tennis shoes on Denim Day and to take a walk on your breaks for YOUR health and wellness while your donation provides health and wellness to members of our community.
