Do Something and Aeropostale teamed up for the Teens for Jeans Campaign. The purpose for this fund-raiser was to encourage teenagers and adults to donate gently-worn jeans to Aeropostale in order to give the jeans to homeless teens. The Staten Island Do Something Club made daily announcements on the loud speaker for students to bring in jeans and by the end of the week had collected 30 bags with up to five pairs of jeans in each bag! The condition of all the donated jeans was clean and barely-worn. Teachers and students alike donated jeans because they understood that there are teenagers out on the streets with insufficient clothing to keep them warm during cold nights and snowy days.
We also advertised Teens for Jeans in each of our neighborhoods using fliers and stickers thanks to Do Something.
At the end of our campaign, our club adviser Mr. Mohr brought all the jeans to the closest Aeropostale.
