More than 1.7 million homeless teens live in America and the common thread between them is that they need jeans to wear.
Sarasota Police Department is participating in a campaign called Teens for Jeans where people can stop in the lobby at the headquarters on Adams Lane and drop off donated jeans.
The campaign is promoted by Aeropostale Stores and DoSomething.org. Since 2007 this campaign has collected more than 2.5 million pairs of donated jeans.
The Sarasota Police Department’s participation in this campaign has been organized by Lieutenant Stannish. Lt. Stannish can be contacted at 941-809-0306.
Donations can be dropped off at any time, at the Sarasota Police Department, from now until Jan. 31.
