VCHS Club WISE collects 100 pairs of jeans for Homeless

The members of We Inspire Strength and Empowerment (WISE) Club collected over 100 pairs of jeans that will be donated to teenagers suffering from homelessness. Approximately 40% of people experiencing homelessness in the United States are under the age of 18. The clothing item they request the most is jeans as they are durable, easy to care for, and help boost their self-esteem in a difficult situation. The club partnered with DoSomething.org and Aeropostale to make this jean drive possible.
