Wow! Target students, families, and teachers donated over 1,275 pairs of socks to homeless families through our Socktober sock drive! We collected 865 pairs of children’s socks, 289 pairs of men’s socks, and 123 pairs of women’s socks. This is just in time for the colder weather too. We will donate the men’s socks to the Homeless Veterans of Atlanta. The women’s and children’s socks will be donated to local shelters. Thank you for your support!!

Happy Socktober!

Happy Socktober!

Target students and families….get ready for Socktober! Our class is joining in the effort to collect NEW socks for people living in shelters. Did you know that socks are one of the most needed and least donated items to homeless people?

In the United States it is estimated that over 600,000 people are homeless. Please send in new pairs of socks this month and put them in the collection box in your Target class. Let’s reach our goal of sending as many pairs of socks as we can to give to those in need.
