If you've shopped at Aeropostale lately you may have helped hundreds of local homeless without even knowing it.
From mid-January until a few days ago Aeropostale was conducting the 'Teens for Jeans' campaign. If you stopped into the store with a pair of old jeans you could get 25% off of a new pair.
They collected 792 pairs of jeans. The New Life Center received 200 pairs of jeans and the rest are going to Family HealthCare Center.
"It's a great outreach kind of thing for us, because we're seeing people that we haven't seen before who are coming in now and we're able to talk to them about what services they might need," Kim Seeb, Director of Homeless Health Services which is a division of Family HealthCare Center, said.
Family HealthCare Center has far more jeans than it can distribute to only the clients of Homeless Health Services. They are planning to connect with homeless shelters throughout the community to help many more people.
