Rebels With a Cause Sponsor Teens for Jeans

Rebels With a Cause will be collecting jeans again this year for Aeropostle’s Teens for Jeans event. We will be collecting used jeans in any size from now until February 15. Aeropostle will pick up our donation and distribute the jeans to homeless shelters around the United States.

Look around your home for jeans that no longer fit and bring them to school. You may drop your donation off in the front lobby area near the pencil machine.

Thank you for contributing to this great cause!
