Jeans Day: Thursday December 4th Benefiting Coats For Kids

This Thursday, Jeans Day at The VanDevere Bunch will benefit Coats For Kids. Employees will be permitted to wear their jeans to work in exchange for a donation to Coats For Kids. There are so many kids in our own community that do not have coats to keep them warm in the cold, so this is a great chance for everyone to clean out their closets.
