Why are we running this drive?
Over a million young people experience homelessness in the US every year and one item they often request is a pair of jeans. They are the perfect item to donate. Jeans can be worn multiple times between washes, be dressed up or dressed down and provide a sense of normalcy to the person wearing them. Teens for Jeans directly provides an essential clothing item for youth in need.
Where and when can I drop off my jeans?
Our Teens for Jeans drive will be running for the entire month of November. You can drop off your jeans at Conestoga Recreation & Aquatic Center in two designated laundry baskets, downstairs by the Fitness Desk or upstairs at the Front Desk.
Where will our collected jeans be donated?
Homeplate Youth Services and Beaverton School District (BSD) Clothes Closet. HomePlate is Washington County's only non-profit provider of drop-in centers and street outreach for young people experiencing homelessness.
Beaverton School District Clothes Closet provides free clothing for K-12 students from families with limited income.
What size jeans can I donate?
Homeplate Youth Services accepts larger sizes.
BSD Clothes Closet accepts all sizes!
Can I donate other items of clothing?
Teens for Jeans only collects jeans, However, BSD Clothes Closet will accept other articles of clothing.
Are there other incentives to donate?
We will waive the fee for Conestoga's Veteran's Day Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, November 11th from 9:00-11:00 am when you donate a pair of jeans during the breakfast!
