During this unprecedented time, many families are struggling and one of the items needed are socks.
Maple Ridge’s third-grade teachers are extremely grateful to all the school’s teachers, staff, and students for their support of “SOCK-tember!”
Maple Ridge’s third-grade students orchestrated this event collecting socks for the homeless and needy for “SOCK-tember.”
“We asked our third-graders, ‘What can each of you do to make the world a better place?’ When we asked, we had no idea we would be launching a school-wide effort to collect socks for the homeless and those in need.
“But here we are, four weeks and over 1,000 pairs of socks later! Wow! The efforts and enthusiasm of our entire Maple Ridge Family has lifted our spirits during the first part of this school year like none other!” said Principal Sara Matis.
“Goodness goes a long way, and our focus on others during ‘SOCK-tember’ will keep blessing the lives of others in the colder months that lie ahead.” (Serve Daily Submission.)
