Catie's Closet provides 25,000+ students, grade pre-k through 12, in-school access to the basics that they need to succeed in school. And we mean everyday items that most of us take for granted like clean socks, shampoo and a pair of durable, comfortable, fashionable jeans. When a student has these essentials, they are able to stop worrying about how they look and start focusing on school.
Today we ask you to join our Jean Jackpot! Our goal is to collect 5,000 pairs of jeans to support the thousands of students we encourage everyday; and we have until July 31 to make this happen!
5,000 jeans is A LOT of jeans, right? Well, through the power of social media, it can be as simple as sharing our mission with three of your friends.

Through the power of social media, anything is possible.
