What A Difference A WORK Day Makes!

The program allows JM Family associates one regularly scheduled work day or two half days of paid time off every year to volunteer for the nonprofit or school of their choice. The program’s name is a play on JM Family’s company-sponsored volunteer initiative, What A Difference A Day Makes!
