Community Commitment

Casual for a Cause

Looking for ways to give back and get involved in larger company giving initiatives? Casual for a Cause is one of the very special community giving programs available to employees. This program is supported by contributions made through payroll deduction. It’s as easy as that! The dollars are then divided on a quarterly basis and our employees select local non-profits and other beneficiaries in need throughout our footprint. To date we have over 70% of employees taking part in this great program.
