Many of you received new clothes for Christmas. What will you do with your old jeans that you will no longer wear?
Please consider donating them to our school's Teens for Jeans project. Sponsored by Aeropostale, the Teens for Jeans program will give your used jeans to homeless people. Some of the over 1.5 million homeless teenagers in America will benefit from your donations.
Please bring your old, clean jeans of any size to Mrs. Moody's, Ms. Hume's or Mrs. McBride's rooms between now and February 6.
