At the urgent request of Vestiaire Social, the Don du Choeur association has been collecting jeans for children and teenagers to help meet the demand for clothing (up 20% from last year) for the most economically vulnerable families in Geneva.
In less than a month, 22 of the city’s private schools have donated 2,029 jeans and trousers to the initiative. In addition, the Swiss fashion company Framework AG in Hünenberg, contributed 60 brand-new pairs of jeans through its Geneva outlet, Père et Fils. The resulting total of 2,089 jeans greatly exceeds what was hoped for and shows what such a strong spirit of solidarity can achieve – and continue to achieve, as six of the schools are continuing their collection drive until the end of Febuary.
Our heartfelt thanks go to every school, every family, every volunteer and every partner organization taking part in this initiative. It was a pleasure to participate in it with you and do share the results online You Tube!
