BECKLEY, W.Va. (WVVA) - Twice a year, the United Way of Southern West Virginia in Beckley hosts Denim for a Difference.

The event serves as a fundraiser for the United Way’s partner agencies, and it allows employees of local business to wear denim for a day or even a week. Employers can purchase a denim day for $5, three denim days for $10 or a denim week for $15.

In addition to helping the local community, those at United Way say the event can also be fun for the businesses that participate.

“You can do a themed week; you can allow employees to wear legging to work; or, if you’re working from home, you can participate and just support the United Way,” explained Trena Dacal, Executive Director of the United Way of Southern West Virginia. “So, it’s a great way for employers to bring their employees together for one cause.”

Denim for a Difference kicks off on Monday, March 20. Businesses can purchase a denim day up until next Friday, March 24. If employers want to purchase Denim for a Difference badges for their employees to wear, they need to do that by this Friday, March 17.
