ING U.S. Employees in Windsor, Conn., Wear Blue Jeans for a Cause

Multimedia with summary

ING U.S. has a culture of caring. At the Windsor, Conn., location, individual employees made a $20 donation in return for the opportunity to wear blue jeans every Friday in May and June. Their generosity, in turn, benefited the Windsor Food Bank. Employees donated more than $7,700, and presented a big check – literally – to the food bank. The donation will go a long way toward providing food items to local Windsor residents, particularly during the summer months when donations to the food bank are low.
