We began the Casual for a Cause program over a decade ago as a way for us all to give back as a community. Each month an employee committee presents three local, nonprofit organizations that need our help, and our team members vote to decide which organization we support. Combined, we’ve raised over $25,000 for these worthy organizations, and we’re just getting started!

Hear what some of our past recipients have to say:
