Your extra pennies could help teens across the country!

The best part about spring cleaning your closet is filling it back up again! If you're in the market for new stuff, please consider shopping at JC Penney and participating in their JCP Cares program.

During the month of March, if you round up your shopping total to the next dollar, those extra cents will go to support the CRISIS TEXT LINE - a free texting hotline where teens can reach out to trained counselors 24/7.

Find out more about this program.
