East Texas Middle Schoolers Collect Jeans For Needy

A group of East Texas 6th graders decided to do their part in helping the needy this winter season.   For the last month, three Bullard Middle School students have been collecting jeans to donate to the Salvation Army. The school says the boys did everything on their own. Thursday, the boys dropped more than a 100 pairs off at the Salvation Army.  

"We were watching channel 1 in second period and they just said they were doing this all around, so I asked our teacher if we could do it and she said yeah," said Cody Goode, 6th grader. 

"I was really impressed, especially since they are 6th graders and they have great leadership skills, and I'm very very proud," said Melinda Tefteller, Teacher.   The Salvation Army says on average it has 25 students staying there, so the jeans are greatly needed.
