By way of a background, Yurek Pharmacy employees, who want to wear jeans to work on Friday’s, pitch in $2 to support a local charity. The company matches staff contributions and sends a cheque to the organization.

Recently, Yurek created a Facebook poll asking the community to recommend local charities to receive its Jeans Day donations. The community offered over 250 nominations that resulted in a list of 52 charities for consideration!

“We’ve really been touched with the response. Over 1,200 engagements by people who care about local charities makes us all #stthomasproud”, says Peter Yurek.

Based on people’s responses, here is an alphabetical list of our recipients for the upcoming year.

All Breed Canine Rescue
