PacsunCalifornia retailer PacSun has teamed up with rapper Jahmila Sandifer, known as Jay Hype, to bring her Clothes-N-Vibes clothing drive initiative to Downtown Los Angeles this Saturday, August 5.

Several years ago, after a decision to scale her efforts and bring greater impact to her community, Hype began giving away clothing to the homeless and became involved in charity events around New Jersey. Through this, Hype organized her first Clothes-N-Vibes drive in her hometown of Jersey City. After several successful events, she decided to make Los Angeles her next stop with the goal of taking it to several cities around the globe.

“We love being able to give back to our community and when Jay Hype approached us with the idea to partner with her, we jumped at the opportunity,” said Alfred Chang, chief brand officer at PacSun. “We look forward to supporting and contributing merchandise to this year’s drive.”

The public event will be accepting donations of new or gently used men’s, women’s, teen and kids clothing and shoes which will be delivered to the Los Angeles Mission. Attendees will have the chance to experience live performances by Jay Hype, Dice Soho and DJ sets by ssticks and Mad Bad Ting. Beverages will be provided by Boxed Water and Red Bull.
