The Power Pioneers began their involvement with the JeanUp campaign (formerly Jeans Day) in 1990 and have been working ever since to raise money for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation (BCCHF).

JeanUp is a month long campaign in May of each year. The Power Pioneers and BC Hydro employee volunteers fundraise  at BC Hydro locations throughout the province and for everyone that donates they are encouraged to wear their jeans every Thursday to work and to show their support for the kids. Power Pioneers also fundraise and collect donations at their Branch meetings and in their communities.

Starting in 2020, the JeanUp Campaign moved online through a special platform at BCCHF that provides the opportunity for every volunteer to have their own fundraising page so they can personalize their invitation to support JeanUp. Due to COVID-19 we pivoted to the Rapid Response Fund making sure we raised funds to address the impacts it may have had on the patients and families in need. This year we look forward to the JeanUp campaign again, continuing our many years of support for this great cause!
