This week, Homecroft Elementary is participating in a Socktober Sock Drive that will collect socks for homeless families in the Indianapolis area this winter. Inspired by Kid President, Homecroft 5th grader, Kayla Young, organized the event so that Homecroft students and staff could participate. She contacted the Holy Name Transitional House and constructed a plan to collect sock donations for them to distribute to homeless families in the community this winter. Kayla also created posters, flyers, announcements, and even a “SockMonster” donation display to promote Socktober. By the end of the week, she hopes to have collected hundreds of pairs of brand new children’s, men’s, and women’s socks. Nice work Kayla!
