Casual for a Cause

In the Casual for a Cause program, a company encourages its employees to dress down or wear jeans for a day (or more) in exchange for a small donation (usually $5) to the Alzheimer's Association. We can provide you with a sticker (or you can use your own) to be given to each employee that pays the donation to dress down. By wearing our sticker that day, employees display their commitment to the cause. Contact your local office for details.
