HAIGH-FARR HONORS MEMORIAL DAY BY PARTICIPATING IN GI GO FUND’S “JEANS FOR TROOPS”
BEDFORD, NH - Haigh-Farr honored Memorial Day and the men and women who have died defending our country by participating in a fund raiser for military veterans and their families.
On May 23, Haigh-Farr employees took part in the 2019 Jeans for Troops fundraising drive benefiting the GI Go Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps veterans returning home find employment, access their health care, financial benefits, and housing. During the drive, Haigh-Farr gave their employees the opportunity to wear jeans to work in exchange for a $5 or higher donation to GI Go Fund.
GI Go Fund Executive Director Jack Fanous said “This Memorial Day, teachers and businesses around the country have set the example to our nation’s children that this is a day to remember the men and women who have fought and died to preserve our liberties, our freedoms, and the American way of life.”
Together, Haigh-Farr employees raised $780 and Haigh-Farr matched every employee donation for a total of $1,560 – exceeding their goal by 212%!
