The New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) is proud to once again sponsor the GI Go Fund’s Jeans for Troops program which is raising funds to support the GI Go Transition Center for veterans who need assistance with employment, housing, education, and access to health care.

The Jeans for Troops program encourages organizations to permit employees to donate $5 to the GI Go Fund in exchange for wearing jeans on Thursday, May 22.

In addition to supporting the GI Go Fund with a contribution toward their efforts, NJEA staff will be given an opportunity to participate in the Jeans for Troops program.

Many NJ schools participated in this effort last year with plans to continue in 2014. See if your school is on the list.
