Tees 4 Teens

The Problem

So far, I have collected over 500 items that have been donated to the Lippman Youth Shelter in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The teenagers here have been abandoned by their parents, abused by their parents or foster care, involved in custody battles and truancy cases. They have nothing when they go to the shelter. I provide them with clothing. The shelter provides 365/24/7 care for the 20 teens ages 13-18 who live there.

Plan of Action

To begin with, I went to my school's National Honor Society and got approval, and collected from classmates. We collected around 200 items. Then I went to my previous middle school and talked to the student government. We collected around 300 items there. In total, we have collected 500+ items. I have made a huge impact on the teenagers lives. Because of Tees 4 Teens, they have clothes to wear, otherwise they would of had nothing.
