MLHS collects 335 pairs of jeans for teens

Miss Teen of Minnesota Ashley Becker poses with 335 pairs of jeans collected at Maple Lake High School as a part of Aéropostale’s Teens for Jeans campaign over a two-week span. Becker worked with High School Social Worker Nichole Rengel and the Friends of Rachel Club to organize the clothing drive. The jeans will be donated to organizations that assist homeless teens nearest to the Aéropostale store where they are donated. The campaign is a response to the fact that one in three homeless individuals is under the age of 18.
