Westview employees had the opportunity to wear jeans to work in exchange for a $5 donation to GI Go Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps veterans returning home find employment, access their health care and financial benefits and link to housing. In addition, GI Go Fund helps veterans struggling with financial difficulties, hosts events to get veterans housed and provides emergency financial assistance to those who need it most.
