Families First of Palm Beach County is drawing attention to child abuse prevention efforts in the most casual way. For the third year, the nonprofit is seeking businesses to take part in Community Denim Day on Friday, April 6 as part of National Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month.
The agency is asking businesses and organizations to allow staff to wear jeans that day in exchange for a $5 donation. In addition, each participating organization will be supplied with information about how to help child abuse prevention efforts. Last year, more than 60 local businesses joined in.
“This Community Denim Day project is a fun and simple way to involve the entire community in child abuse prevention awareness efforts,” said Julie Swindler, CEO of Families First. “Through education efforts and awareness, everyone in the community can become a protector of our children.”
