Academy Supports Jeans for Teens
Donations of worn, unused, or out of style jeans were made to homeless teens. This initiative is a response to the problem of teen homelessness. Approximately 1 in 3 people experiencing homelessness is under the age of eighteen. One of the items homeless youth request most is a pair of jeans.
Academy of Our Lady juniors Allison Barrios of Marrero and Taylor Seals of Lafitte coordinated the Teens for Jeans drive at Academy of Our Lady.
