‘Teens For Jeans’ Fundraising Drive (DoSomething)

February 2, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Description

The Problem
Almost 40% of people experiencing homelessness in the United States are under 18. One item they commonly request in homeless shelters is a pair of jeans. Why? Jeans are comfortable in any season and can be worn multiple times between washes. Plus, for a teenager without many belongings, wearing a pair of jeans can provide a sense of normalcy.

The Solution
Over the last several years, DoSomething members have collected over 5 million pairs of jeans for homeless shelters around the country. One year, they donated enough to clothe half of all US youth in homeless shelters. Together with Aéropostale, I would like to welcome you to the LARGEST youth-led denim drive EVER. Please support this cause by bringing all of your used jeans to her drives.
