Community leaders in Maryland’s Prince George’s County are fed up with young men sagging their pants. The Washington Times reports they are even holding a belt drive.

The Take Charge Foundation program is holding their first Pull ‘Em Up Campaign where people can donate their new or gently used belts for students to keep their pants at their waist:

Prince George’s County community leaders frustrated by the precariously low waistbands of young men are collecting belts this month to put a stop to sagging pants.

As part of the first Pull ‘Em Up campaign, the Take Charge Foundation program is leading a belt drive at 13 locations across the county where people can donate new or gently used belts that will be used to make students’ pants sit at their waists.
