Jeans for Teens

From Raven Neal-Jackson (C/O 2015):

Hey everyone! It's that time again for TEENS FOR JEANS! As most of you know, I ran this drive last year and our school donated a total of about 200 pairs of jeans! This year I'm hoping to double that number! The drive will run until February 13, 2015. So please go and raid your old closets! I know all of you have jeans that you can no longer fit or just don't want. Make sure they're in good condition and do not have rips in them! All jeans will be donated to homeless shelters throughout the United States. Why not help a teen in need? I will put some boxes or bins by the big board in the hallway. Feel free to drop your donations there! Thanks guys!!
