Every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. This October,
SoulPancake and Kid President want 2 million people to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.”
- If you are able and willing, please send your child to school with a NEW pair of socks any day this October.
-They will then add their sock contribution to a Sock Box which will be kept in their classroom.
- Every Friday I will collect a count of each classroom’s socks and do an announcement over the PA
-At the end of October we will be donating all of the socks we raise to a local shelter.
-This is a wonderful way to show our students at CPS one of the traits of a good citizen: To help people in our community!
-Here is the link to the Socktober website which gives you more information about Socktober including some videos of schools that have done this in the past: http://soulpancake.com/socktober/
-Any questions can be emailed to your child’s teacher
for which class has raised the most socks by the end of that week.
