VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –You can donate your old jeans to a good cause.

Cat Connections, a leadership group at Valdosta High School, is collecting jeans to send to Haiti.

You can drop off any size and brand at the high school through mid-February.

Aeropostale employees from the Valdosta Mall will collect them as part of the retailer's national Teens for Jeans campaign.

So far, Cat Connections has collected 250 pairs.

"As a class we're hoping to collect a thousand pairs of jeans and I think by February 15 we should get it done," said student Lexi Hurst.

The first 100,000 pairs the retailer receives across the nation will got to Haiti.

Extras will go to the homeless.
