Local Aéropostale Stores Collecting Jeans Through February 29th through DoSomething.org & Aéropostale’s “Teens for Jeans” Campaign, Which Has Collected 5 million Pairs of Jeans to Date And Clothed Half of America’s Homeless Youth

January 22, 2020 @ 10:00 AM - February 29, 2020 @ 9:00 PM

WHAT: As homelessness continues to rise in the US – with 40% under age 18 – jeans remain one of the most requested items at shelters. Through DoSomething.org and Aéropostale’s 2020 Teens for Jeans campaign, young people can hold jean drives at their schools/in their communities and bring the jeans to any local Aéropostale store. Aéropostale will then take the new or lightly used jeans to local shelters and distribute them to young people in need.

WHEN: January 22, 2020 through February 29, 2020

WHERE: Aéropostale (100 W 33rd St, New York, NY 10001)

HOW TO GET INVOLVED: Young people can visit DoSomething.org/Teens or text TEENS to 38383 to sign up for the campaign. They are guided on how to hold jean drives at their schools and in their communities, and when to drop off their jean donations at their local Aéropostale store. Those who complete the campaign by February 29th will be automatically entered to win a $2,500 scholarship from DoSomething. In addition, Aéropostale will be rewarding a $10,000 grant to the school that collects the most jeans, and a $5,000 grant to the runner-up school.
