Forestwood Middle School from Flower Mound is collecting jeans for Teens for Jeans, a national campaign in partnership with Aeropostale and DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit organization for young people and social change.
Teens for Jeans encourages young people across the country to run a jean drive in their school or community to help provide clothing for youth experiencing homelessness.
Over a million young people experience homelessness in the United States every year and one of the most requested items that young people in homeless shelters ask for is a pair of jeans.
In the past seven years young people across the country have collected over 4.3 million pairs of jeans through Teens for Jeans.
This year, the top collecting high school, middle school, elementary school, and college will each win a $5,000 school grant.
In addition to the school grant, the school that collects the most jeans will win a private school concert by pop band The Vamps and Aeropostale t-shirts for the entire school.
Members of the community can support Forestwood’s drive by dropping off their gently used denim at 2810 Morriss Rd. Flower Mound, TX 75028.
