Teenager Corbin Healy founded the non-profit corporation Teens4good, Inc., one year ago to not only serve the community but to inspire other teens to do the same thing.
That mission has succeeded in the form of Healy’s Summit Christian Academy classmate Perry Worden, who came up with a “Jeans 4 Good” service project which collected jeans for City Union Mission. Nov. 2-3.
The main collection station was at the Lakewood Marina located at the intersection of Lakewood Blvd. and Dick Howser Rd.
“It is exciting to see other teenagers become inspired to help the community,” said Teens4good President Corbin Healy. “Perry has done a great job identifying a need and finding a solution. We are excited to support and assist teens like Perry who want to make a difference.”
Teens4good, inc. has also partnered with Summit Christian Academy and will collect jeans at 1450 and 1500 S.W. Jefferson in Lee’s Summit now through Nov. 7. Students at the school are encouraged to bring in new or used jeans to donate to the drive.
Any person able to donate jeans is encouraged to drop off jeans at either of these locations.
