Youth Bureau Calls Upon Residents to Donate to Annual Teens for Jeans Clothing Drive

Islip, NY – The Town of Islip Youth Bureau and their youth service agency, Youth Enrichment Services, have once again joined forces with local school districts to collect jeans for the national “Teens for Jeans” Campaign. The Islip Youth Bureau is encouraging residents, community and school groups and businesses to support the Teens for Jeans campaign by donating new or used jeans in good condition (any size) at one of Islip’s local drop-off sites between January 29th and February 26th, 2016. The locations of the drop off sites are:

- Town of Islip Youth Bureau, 401 Main Street-3rd Floor, Islip
- Central Islip High School, 85 Wheeler Rd, Central Islip
- Islip High School, 2508 Union Blvd, Islip
- James Wilson Young Middle School, 602 Sylvan Ave, Bayport
- Sayville Middle School, 20 Brook St, West Sayville

Statistics show that roughly one million young people experience homelessness in North America. One of their most requested items are jeans. When someone enters a homeless shelter, they often don’t have more than the clothes they are wearing. Last year, 80,000 young people in the U.S. signed up for Teens for Jeans, collecting over 800,000 pairs of jeans. Town of Islip participants contributed over 2,200 pairs. Your kindness and compassion will help clothe men, women and children who are in great need.
