Staff of the Fort Drum Regional Health Planning Organization recently made a $600 donation to the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park.
The donation, which was raised by staff as part of FDRHPO’s “Casual For a Cause” initiative, will support the zoo’s snowy owl exhibit. Casual For a Cause allows FDRHPO employees to wear casual clothing to work on Friday in exchange for a small donation — about $5 per Friday. Donations are pooled together on a quarterly basis and given to a staff-elected local nonprofit organization.
Past donations from FDRHPO staff have gone to the SPCA of Jefferson County, Watertown Urban Mission, and the American Red Cross, among others. From now until the end of July, staff members are raising donations for the Code Green Campaign, a first responder oriented mental health advocacy and education organization.
