Jeans and Teams

2018 Jeans & Teams - Friday, February 2, 2018

United Way of Blair County fights for the education, health, and financial stability of every Blair County resident. Each year, we raise funds through an annual campaign to support local programs offered by Blair County non-profit agencies that address the needs of our community.

Our annual Jeans & Teams event is an opportunity to raise additional proceeds to provide more funding to programs that have positive impacts in our community.

Jeans & Teams is held on the last Friday before the Super Bowl. Blair County businesses are encouraged to allow employees to dress in jeans and their favorite team apparel in exchange for a $5.00 donation per person. If your business is unable to participate on that particular Friday, we encourage you to choose another date in January or February to hold your Jeans & Teams event.

NEW THIS YEAR—”SOUP-ER” BOWL CARDS! This year we will be adding the option of “soup-er” bowl cards to our Jeans & Teams event. Even if you aren’t able to wear jeans you can still participate by purchasing a “soup-er” bowl card. A variety of restaurants will be featured on the card. Cardholders will be able to redeem the card at each of the restaurants during specified months for one cup of soup during lunch time. Look for more information about card purchase price and included restaurants to come!
