YJA's two favorite things are coming together this year-- a little interregional rivalry, and a whole lot of giving-- just in time for the holiday season! From December 5th-18th, YJA will be hosting a clothing drive across the country, with each region trying to facilitate the most Dan (charity) that they can. If you have coats at the back of your closets, or jeans that fit a bit more like jorts (that's jean-shorts, for the less cultured), go ahead and donate them to the closest repository!
