Casual Day Program
Macomb County Casual Day Program
The Macomb County Board of Commissioners is pleased to continue the Macomb County Casual Day Charitable Collections Program. Employees who choose to participate (with department leadership permission) may wear casual clothing to work on Fridays (or other designated day) if they donate at least a dollar which is then donated to charitable organizations. Once a year - generally in the fall - the BOC puts out a call for nominations of charitable organizations. Organizations which indicate their desire to be recipients of the collected funds submit a letter, proof of charitable organization status and solicitation license from the State Attorney General's Office. If more submissions than collection dates are received, a lottery is held and a schedule for the upcoming year is determined.
For 2017, the BOC announced expansion of the program to include an incentive for employee participation. The department which raises the largest donation each month - based upon percentage - is treated to coffee and donuts! Donating departments and chosen charities are listed below. Photos are available via the BOC social media pages.
