Organizers of the drive, which will run through Feb. 15, are collecting unworn, unused and unneeded jeans in hopes of winning a scholarship from the youth-oriented community service website www.dosomething. org. The school that raises the most pairs of jeans will be awarded a $10,000 grant, which the group plans to put toward a larger community service project.
