Many organizations have “Casual Fridays”, a perk for employees to end the work week in more comfortable clothing. For CSPDC staff, the opportunity to wear jeans on Fridays is granted by making a small monetary contribution. Over many years, the CSPDC’s “Jeans For Charity” Program has made donations to help people throughout the Region and beyond. In 2021, staff contributed more than five hundred dollars ($500.00) to a variety of organizations. Through these donations, the CSPDC supported an organization that provides transportation services to low income individuals trying to get to work; sponsored a staff member who participated in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk; supplied people in need with food, clothing, and furniture; assisted Afghan refugees who have moved into the Region; helped people hospitalized with mental illness with clothing and personal needs; and made Christmas brighter for children who have very little. Fridays for CSPDC staff are more than “casual”, it is a day to extend a helping hand to those in need.
