Help Harriet Eddy Middle School collect jeans for Jeans for Teens donation drive

Harriet Eddy Middle School is collecting jeans for the national Jeans for Teens donation drive, sponsored by DoSomething.org.  Students and staff at Eddy have currently collected over 4,100 pairs of jeans to date. 

Eddy-JeansForTeens

Since 2007, the Jeans for Teens drive has collected over 2.5 million pairs of jeans for homeless teens across the country.  DoSomething.org, Aéropostale and P.S. from Aéropostale have partnered with over 1,000 homeless shelters across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to donate jeans to homeless shelters.  Jeans collected by Eddy students will be donated to shelters in the local community.

Harriet Eddy Middle School is competing to be the top school across the country in the jeans drive.  If Eddy wins, the school will receive a $10,000 grant, sweatshirts for all Eddy students and a celebratory pizza party. Eddy will accept jeans or pants – except sweatpants and shorts – of all sizes – new or used – in good condition through Thursday, February 22.  Pants donations can be dropped off in the front office at Harriet Eddy Middle School (9329 Soaring Oaks Drive, Elk Grove 95758) between 7:45 a.m. and 4 p.m.
