About Denim Fridays: Aronson employees may wear denim in the office on Fridays by providing a small contribution towards our Charity of the Month. The Aronson Foundation matches (up to $1,000) the funds collected for Denim Fridays each month to contribute towards the month’s designated charity. The monthly recipients are nominated by employees who have personal involvement with a charitable organization.
