There are many ways that groups of people can get involved and support our cause.

 

·     Start Your Own “Jeans Day For Youth” Program at Your OfficeKforce Professional Staffing started “Jeans Day For Youth” at their Tampa, FL headquarters.  Every Friday, employees must donate $5 in order to wear jeans to work.  Over the course of 18 months, Kforce has been able to raise $40,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay.  If you would like to start your own “Jeans Day For Youth” program at your place of business or other organization, please contact Ray Morganti of Kforce Professional Staffing for more information.  Ray can be reached by email at RMorganti@kforce.com.

 

·     Volunteer Your Team or Organization for a “Club Clean Up Day”Twenty-two employees from the Southeast Business Unit of the IBM Software Group volunteered their time in October 2008 at one of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay.  By the end of the day, the teams had accomplished an amazing amount of work: they painted all of the hallways/stairwells, removed old computers from the technology center/installed new ones, pressure washed sidewalks, removed weeds from the front entrance, created a new area for a digital arts center, assembled desks, and organized the computer storage area.  If you would like to organize your own “Club Clean Up Day” with people from your place of business or other organization, please contact Ray Morganti of Kforce Professional Staffing for more information.  Ray can be reached by email at RMorganti@kforce.com(You can read more about this story here:  https://computerrific.wordpress.com/2008/11/10/ibm-community-service-day-at-tampa-bay-area-boys-and-girls-club/)
