BLAIR CO., Pa. -- The United Way of Blair County banded together with local businesses for the third annual Jeans and Teams Day Event.
Participating companies were encouraged to let employees dress down in jeans and gear from their favorite sports teams in exchange for a $5 donation.
The money goes to the United Way to support various programs in the area.
Every year there are more programs asking for funding and so the need continues to just grow, said Dorcey Cuzzolina United way of Blair County. We again have to find really creative ways to continue to bring in more donor dollars to support the programs that are addressing those needs.
The organization has raised $12,000 in the past two years from the jeans and teams day.
