United Way of Blair County is teaming up with local businesses and agencies to sponsor the third annual “Jeans & Teams Day” on Friday, January 24, 2014. In the past two years, participating businesses raised over $12,000 through this event to support United Way’s Annual Campaigns.
Blair County businesses and agencies are encouraged to allow employees to dress in jeans and team apparel in exchange for a $5 donation. Businesses and agencies that are unable to participate on January 24th are invited to choose another date in January to hold their United Way “Jeans & Teams Day”.
Contributions raised by this special event will support the 2013-2014 Annual Campaign. Campaign proceeds are awarded annually, through a competitive grant process, to non-profit agencies to help fund programs in Blair County that address the needs of our community. Visit www.unitedwayofblaircounty.org to view the list of community programs that are currently supported by United Way funding. These programs have a measureable impact on the health, education and financial stability of our community members, as well as providing a safety net for emergency needs.
