Teens 4 Jeans!

I'm Shannell and the store manager of the local Aeropostale in the Columbia Center Mall. Right now we're in the middle of our 5th annual Teens 4 Jeans jean drive. 1 out of 3 homeless people in the U.S. are under the age of 18! And us as a company are out to help in any way we can. Teens 4 jeans runs from January 16th-February 12th. You can bring any gently used jeans, any brand, and any size to our store and receive 25% off of a new pair. All the jeans will be donated to the tricities union gospel mission, and if we raise out goal of 7000 plus we will be able to help out numerous other teen shelters here in the local community. We raised 2300 pairs last year and we hope to double it and then some this year! We currently have 4 local schools also signed up to join in on the cause; Chiawana High School, Pasco High School, Mcloughlin Middle School, and Stevens Middle school. They're all competing for a 5000 dollars for their school, jeans for everyone, and a end of year party thrown by our company for the school that raises the most jeans. We hope to see everyone soon!
