Giving back and contributing to society is an unparalleled gratifying feeling for us here at Cherry Central. Several years ago, we created our “Denim Fund” to be used for charitable giving.
While the dress code remains business casual, we invite employees who would like to wear jeans to work to throw in $1.00 for each day that jeans or their equivalent are worn. This is an employee bonus AND we raise money for good causes.
Along with helping individual families or an employee in need, here are a few of the charities we have donated to over the years:
Outside of our local headquarters here in Traverse City, our Growers also do their part to bring their local communities together. For example, Rowley & Hawkins Fruit Farms just hosted their Cherry Blossom Run. This 1 mile, 5K, and 10K event provided options for family and friends to gather together while supporting a local business and promoting a fun and healthy lifestyle.
Cherry Central and our family of Growers are committed to continue giving back and thankful to be part of such wonderful communities.
