CHS offers chance to win $100 donating jeans

Posted on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 4:18 pm

Skillls USA is giving away $100 Walmart card  at the Red Raider Basketball Game, Feb. 4. For every five pairs of jeans brought to the game, participants will receive a chance to win. There is no limit on the number of jeans that you can bring in to the game.


The drive is part of the annual Teens for Jeans clothes drive.

Teens for Jeans is a national community service project that collects jeans (or any type of pants/shorts etc.) to benefit the less fortunate. 

This community service project holds a competition that includes elementary, middle, and high schools across the nation.  Skills USA, a club that intends to advance the vocational attributes of its members, will have drop boxes in various locations in town, including the Rec. Center and Fantasy Radio.

Last year, when Skills USA chose to participate in this event, the club collected over 7,000 pairs of jeans.  Skills USA was awarded $5,000 from and Aeropostale.

Skills USA is asking anyone who would like to donate his or her gently used jeans to do so before the deadline on Feb. 10.   All donations are very much appreciated.
