CHAMPAIGN -- This Kid to Know makes sure those in need, know they're not alone. High school senior Olivia Knox heard about a jeans' clothing drive, but she wanted to do more than just donate.

So, she started a "Teens for Jeans" drive at Centennial High School. The jeans go to homeless youth here and across the country. Olivia has collected about 60 pairs in two months. She also set up a box at the Cupcake Shop downtown.

She says she did it because she knows what it's like to be in need. The Teens for Jeans drive ends Friday, so there's still time to donate.
