 Kattee Forche, a Canton resident who works at the Johan Sutton State Farm Insurance office in downtown New Boston, is collecting jeans that will be donated to area teens in shelters who, in her words, need that extra sense of normalcy that the jeans provide. 

“The #1 item requested by teenagers in homeless shelters is jeans,” Forche said in a social media post. “Jeans can be worn multiple times between washing, can be dressed up or dressed down. Jeans create a sense of normalcy to teens who could really use some extra normalcy”

Forche is accepting all types of jeans, including men’s, women’s, teens’, kid’s, and baby sizes.

They can be dropped off at the insurance office at 37243 Huron River Drive in New Boston.

She plans to accept donations through Feb. 10, and will deliver them to a local shelter on Valentine’s Day.

In 2016, Forche collected nearly 300 pairs of jeans of all shapes and sizes during the first year of organizing the drive.
