Westfield Voke Tech 100th Anniversary Celebration
TEENS FOR JEANS CAMPAIGN
The Friend’s of Rachel Club at Westfield Vocational Technical High School is collecting jeans for Teens for Jeans, a national campaign in partnership with Aéropostale and DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit organization for young people and social change. Teens for Jeans encourages young people across the country to run a jean drive in their school or community to help provide clothing for youth experiencing homelessness.
Over a million young people experience homelessness in the United States every year and one of the most requested items that young people in homeless shelters ask for is a pair of jeans. This year, the top collecting high school, middle school, elementary school, and college will each win a $5,000 school grant. In addition to the school grant, the school that collects the most jeans will win a private school concert by pop band The Vamps and Aéropostale t-shirts for the entire school.
Members of the community can support The Friend’s of Rachel Club drive by dropping off their gently used denim at WVTHS and the Westfield Police Department from December 15 to February 14. For more information, please visit TeensForJeans.com or contact Kristine Hupfer at 413-572-6533.
