Arlington High School's chapter of the DoSomething Club will be participating in one of DoSomething.org's national campaigns, Teens for Jeans, hosting a jean drive in which all jeans collected will be donated to homeless shelters.
As there are 1.7 million homeless in the US today, ⅓ of the homeless population is under the age of 18. The number one item teens request when they visit a homeless shelter is a pair of jeans and therefore a jean drive is needed.
The club promotes young people to take action for social change through activism and volunteerism. Members are encouraged to take part in both national campaigns as well as local drives supporting their community. The club fundraises for different causes, volunteers in and around Arlington and fosters awareness about pertinent issues both locally and globally.
