“Jeans Friday” Donations Support the Amyloidosis Foundation

“Jeans Friday” Donations Support the Amyloidosis Foundation

When Jennifer Irick’s co-workers at Pacific Northwest Title decided to choose the Amyloidosis Foundation as their monthly charity for “Jeans Friday” donations, in honor of her father who is battling amyloidosis, she was beyond touched. Jennifer has worked at PNT in Washington for over 18 years and says it feels like her second family.  She and her co-workers raised a total of $545!

The charities are nominated by employees, each who have a personal connection to the groups they suggest. A minimum of $5 is required each time they choose to wear jeans. All of the money is then sent directly to the charity at the end of month. They all believe strongly in giving back and supporting nonprofits that do good work.

Jennifer’s mother and father live outside of Madison, Wisconsin and she visits as often as she can. She is amazed at her father’s strength over the years, facing this rare disease head-on and never losing hope. Her family is grateful for the doctors and researchers who have developed treatments for amyloidosis and looks forward to a cure in the near future.

Thank you Jennifer and everyone at PNT for your support!
