Put the ZIP on Homelessness!
Donate, wear jeans, raise awareness! The
Fairfax-Falls Church Community Partnership on Ending Homelessness
needs your help to make our third annual Jeans Day a success. Give $5 and wear jeans October 18 to put the ZIP on homelessness in Northern Virginia. Donate online, by check or in person!
Here are a few ideas to make your Jeans Day a huge success. It's fun and simple to organize.
- Ask people to come to work in their jeans and make a donation of $5. It's a great way to bring a team, a floor, an office building or the whole company together.
- Download the Jeans Day flyer and distribute. Post it on your bulletin board or internal portal!
- Raise the profile of your organization by highlighting your Jeans Day in your annual report, on your Web site and in your local paper or trade magazine.
- Make a night of it! The fun doesn't have to stop at 5 p.m.; hold a happy hour or karaoke night.
Thanks to Apple Federal Credit Union, Fairfax Chamber of Commerce,The Connection Newspapers and the Office to Prevent and End Homelessness for their Jeans Day work. Look for their jeans on October 18!
