Patterson High School recently participated in a campaign called “Teens for Jeans” whereby students donated jeans to people in need. In return, students received two service learning hours and a discount coupon for Aeropostale. The campaign was co-sponsored by the Student Government Association, the senior class, and the Jonathan Ogden Club. Ms. Brett, Coach Kelly Bagdasarian and Ms. Rue were the teachers in charge of the campaign within the school. This campaign lasted from February 12th to February 22nd.

“I found out about the campaign from Ms Rue and it seemed interesting, so I searched more about it online”, Ms. Brett told the Patterson Press.

Aeropostale was a sponsor of the campaign. The jeans collected at the school will be sent to Aeropostale and then they will send it to shelters throughout the country.

“It feels good to be making a difference in our community while allowing our Patterson students to give back to the community”, said Coach Kelly.

The campaign was a big success as the school collected many jeans from the students and sent them off to go to the shelters.
