Aronson’s Charities of the Month for June 2017 are SoCal Food Allergy and JDRF.
The Southern California Food Allergy Institute (also known as SoCal Food Allergy) is a nonprofit that is revolutionizing food allergy treatment. Affiliated with Miller Children’s Hospital, the nation’s 6th largest children’s hospital, the organization offers the only hospital-based food immunotherapy Tolerance Induction Program (TIP).
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, with the singular goal to end T1D. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease with no cure that strikes both children and adults suddenly. Those with T1D must continuously monitor their blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin through a pump, and carefully balance their doses with their eating and activity throughout the day.

About Denim Days: Aronson employees may wear denim in the office throughout the week and are encouraged to provide a small contribution towards our Charity of the Month. The Aronson Foundation matches (up to $1,000) the funds collected for Denim Days 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.
