Blue Jean Friday's
One of our favorite charitable fund raising events is “Blue Jean Fridays”, which allows each employee the forgiveness to wear nice blue jeans to work on Fridays for a donation of $10 each month. With over 30 associates, we are capable of raising a nice sum over the year and Hanson & Ryan, as the employer matches, that amount. Each year our staff nominates worthly charitable causes around the local community, which we collectively decide on.
Wayne Animal Shelter
This year we teamed up with the Wayne Animal Shelter to give back to animals without homes. Not only do we donate goods to the shelter we are also donating our time. Each week some of our employees will go to help clean, feed, walk, and give some much need love to our four legged friends. If you would like to donate goods to the shelter you can bring them directly to their location (201 Pompton Plains Crossroads, Wayne, NJ). You can also bring them to our office (87 Lackawanna Ave, Totowa, NJ) and we will deliver on your behalf. Click the following link to find list of items the shelter always needs, Wish List.
