Jeans for Teens
Participate in January's Green School initiative by clearing out your closet space and donating gently-used jeans for our Jeans for Teens campaign. Used jeans will help families in our local communities stay warm this winter. Jeans of all sizes will be accepted. Please bring in your jeans to your homeroom teacher or directly to Room 5 (Mrs. Jang/Woo’s room) by Thursday, January 28.
Let’s see which class can collect the most jeans.
