Warehouse One The Jean Store in Abbotsford is among its locations across Canada collecting gently used jeans for a good cause.

The annual Denim Donor event collects jeans for shelters that help local families, women and children in need.

Since the program began eight years ago, 71,000 pairs of jeans have been donated across Canada.

The campaign runs from Jan. 27 to Feb. 10. To encourage donations, Warehouse One is offering 20 per cent off a purchase when three or more pairs are donated, 15 per cent off for two pairs, and 10 per cent for one pair.

Warehouse One in Abbotsford is located at #105 – 1201 Sumas Way.
