New: Teens for Jeans
Did you know that 1 in 3 people experiencing homelessness is under the age of 18? Did you also know that jeans are one of the most requested items at homeless shelters? We are sponsoring our 2nd Annual Teens for Jeans drive with dosomething.org and Aeropostale. All we're asking you to do is to bring in any pair of jeans that you no longer want--so long as they are in good condition and don't have any holes. Any size. Any brand. Only jeans.
Please drop them off in your homeroom teacher's room. All who donate will receive a 25%-off coupon to Aeropostale.
