Jones New York In The Classroom gets AAFA '06 social responsibility award

27
Jan '06
Apparel group Jones Apparel Group Inc's cause program, which led to the creation of the non-profit organization, Jones New York In The Classroom Inc, has been awarded the American Apparel and Footwear Association's (AAFA) 2006 Excellence in Social Responsibility Award in the general welfare category.

This annual award from the AAFA recognizes best practices in a variety of areas of social responsibility that positively impact employees, business or community.

Peter Boneparth, President & CEO of Jones Apparel Group Inc, said, "This is Jones Apparel Group's investment in the future."

"Teachers are essential to the success of our children, and Jones Apparel Group wants to take a leadership role in providing immediate and tangible help in the classroom, while encouraging others to join us along the way,” he said.

"We believe that if we appreciate the teacher, we in turn appreciate our children, which is exactly why Jones Apparel Group was inspired to take up this cause," added Boneparth.

Jones New York In The Classroom is taking a multi-faceted approach to supporting teachers at critical points in their careers, with a focus on four areas: recruitment, retention, professional development, and recognition and support.

Jones Apparel Group's long-term financial and corporate commitment to this cause both implements corporate programs to raise funds for Jones New York In The Classroom and allows employees paid time off to donate their time in education facilities for pre- kindergarten through 12th grade based in their local communities.
