On October 7, 2016 Jaburg Wilk employees participated in Lee National Denim Day. Employees donated $5 and wore jeans - and pink shirts - to work. It was especially important this year as one of their employee’s sister was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and has just begun her fight.
Since its inception in 1996, Lee National Denim Day has become one of the largest single-day fundraisers nationwide for breast cancer. Funds raised support the American Cancer Society and their breast cancer programs and services.
