Employees of Memorial Health System (MHS) wore blue jeans at work for another “Jeans Day” fundraiser on Fridays throughout the month of December. Employees make a donation, of at least $5, and are allowed to wear blue jeans at work. A total donation of $720 was presented to the Dickinson County CEO (Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities) program. The CEO program is the standard for entrepreneurship education in the United States. It is open to students in all five Dickinson County high schools. The money will go into their “Friends of CEO” fund. The fund pays for odds and ends the students need throughout the year. The monthly Jeans Day fundraiser is organized by the MHS Employer of Choice (EOC) committee.
