Over one million young people experience homelessness every year in the U.S. An item they often request? A pair of jeans. Teens for Jeans provides a simple and impactful way for young people to help their peers:
--Students collect gently-used jeans at school
--Students drop the jeans at an Aeropostale store on February 15th
--Aeropostale delivers the jeans to a local shelter
Christel House Academy Interact Club members will be collecting jeans for this fundraiser from now until Friday, February 13th in room 311 of the high school.
Please send in your old (but nice) jeans!
