To kick off 2016, CoreMedical Group participated in the annual DoSomething.org Teens for Jeans drive. Our employees brought in gently used and new jeans to donate to homeless youth in our area.
Jeans are one of the most requested items among homeless teenagers. With over a million young people experiencing homelessness each year, our jeans donation drive had a huge impact in helping teens feel a sense of normalcy during this difficult time. Nationally, the drive collected 172,030 pairs of jeans, with 54,733 participants!
Our employees collected over 630 pairs of jean during our January collection drive! The boxes and boxes of jeans we gathered were donated to two local homeless shelters. Ruth's House is located in Haverhill, Massachusetts and The Lazarus House is located in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Both are just over the state line from our office in Salem.
