CLARK, NJ – Socks, a simple part of getting dressed each day, or is it? Students at St. John the Apostle School found out recently that although they might have a drawer full of them, socks are a much-needed item for many homeless people.
In response to the need, on Tuesday, April 9, the entire student body, from Pre K 3 to the 8th grade, were able to wear jeans to school in exchange for a pair of socks.
The program was carried out in conjunction with Caldwell University’s Campus Ministry Team. All the donated socks will be distributed when the university team conducts one of its midnight runs into New York City to aid the homeless.
School officials were pleased with the outcome and called the project, a great collaboration for a great cause.
