Freshman students look to help homeless Cape teens
According to the Cape Cod Council of Churches, Cape Cod now has a homeless population of approximately 1,000, with single mothers and children now the fastest growing segment of the population. In response, freshman students at Cape Cod Regional Technical High School have joined forces with the clothing store Aéropostle and DoSomething.org for the 2011 Teens for Jeans campaign.
From now until February 13th, just drop off your good-quality used jeans at Cape Cod Tech and they will be donated to homeless teens across the Cape. Aéropostle will reward you for your good deed with a coupon for 25% off a new pair of jeans at the store.
Cape Cod Tech students are involved through the school’s Community Service Learning program, a teaching and learning approach that integrates community service with academic and technical study to enrich learning, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities.
