Jeans for Teens at Danbury

Danbury Senior Lindsay Mark has created a service project, "Jeans for Teens”. Over one third of all homeless people in the United States are teenagers and the number one request at homeless shelters is for blue jeans that fit teens. 

Working in conjunction with The Danbury Key Club and Dosomething.org, Lindsay has collected over 50 pairs of jeans for donation. The jeans drive continues at Danbury until February 14th. If you have clean, gently worn jeans, consider donating them for a good cause, and bring them to the Danbury office before February 14.
