Over 6,000 Pairs Of Jeans Collected For ‘Teens For Jeans’ Contest

Haylee Richards, Corner Canyon High School senior and cheerleading captain, sits atop boxes of used jeans she collected mid-December through Feb. 13 as part of a leadership opportunity through the National Charity League of SLC and national Teens for Jeans contest. Richards rallied her fellow cheerleaders to the cause and collected over 6,000 pairs of jeans from schools, scouting programs and businesses in the area to deliver to charities throughout Salt Lake on Valentine’s Day. “It’s been so amazing,” Haylee said about the experience. “People have been so great. We collected from neighbors, parents’ workplaces, schools—I’ve loved being able to do this.” Haylee hopes her team wins the Teens for Jeans contest for the best jeans drive, not only for the chance to receive an individual college scholarship, but also for CCHS to receive a $5,000 grant and special performance by the popular boy band, “The Vamps.” Photo courtesy of Haylee Richards
