Charity of the Month: Catholic Charities of Shiawassee and Genesee Counties
In 2002, PHLY implemented a Jeans Day program whereby employees are able to wear jeans to work on Fridays for making a $1 donation to an organization chosen by employees. In addition, PHLY contributes $1,000 per organization. The program has been extremely successful with over 75% participation. The organization chosen to receive the Jeans Day donations is recognized on our website and social media accounts as the Charity of the Month.
PHLY is pleased to recognize one outstanding organization as our Charity of the Month.
