During the month of October, students in Theresa Gartland’s third grade class at Windsor Elementary School collected socks for the homeless. They called it the month of “Socktober,” inspired by Brad Montague’s Kid President. According to the Happy Socktober website, “Socktober is an easy and fun movement to help the homeless in your community during the month of October. Kid President creator Brad Montague launched Socktober as a way to get socks and other necessities to the homeless.”
Students in Mrs. Gartland’s class collected almost 500 pairs of new socks and donated them to the Interfaith Hospitality Network Shelter program.
