General Insurance Services has decided to help employees give back to the community by allowing them to wear blue jeans on each Friday of the month. Each month the GIS Board of Directors selects a charity to donate to. If an employee chooses to wear jeans on Friday, they are asked to donate to the charity.
Since its start in February 2012, General Insurance Services has donated over $1200 to various charities.
Previous charities of the month include:
- Indiana University Heart Fund – February
- Michiana Resources – March
- Youth Service Bureau – April
- Parents & Friends – May
The Blue Jean Friday Charity for June will be the American Cancer Society, to coordinate with the local Relay for Life Event in La Porte, IN on June 23-24, 2012.
