Jeans for Teens starts collecting tomorrow

‘Tis the season to be generous. The holiday season is fast approaching, and sadly, this year there are still many families left struggling to just get by. About 17 percent of children in the Northwoods live below the poverty level. These children may go through their day-to-day life without the necessities to live a healthy life, such as food, shelter and clothes. Rhinelander High School FBLA/DECA would love to help these children out in its latest service activity: Jeans for Teens. From Dec. 16 – Jan. 6, the group will be collecting gently used jeans and giving them to teens who need them.
Help out FBLA/DECA by donating some of your old jeans. The collection sites to drop off jean donations are located at Rhinelander High School, James Williams Middle School, Rhinelander District Library and Coffee Beans. Look for the big box wrapped in colorful paper and bows. If you have a pair of jeans that have been sitting in your closet since you can’t remember when, a pair that you got last Christmas and never actually liked, or even a pair you just don’t fit into anymore; they will take them. Donated jeans will go to the local Frederick Place so children and families in our area can feel the love and warmth from their “new” jeans. Help out by donating some of your Jeans for Teens.
