Woodland’s Sox Rox Drive for the Homeless
Woodland’s National Junior Honor Society is sponsoring a sock drive for the homeless, running now through Spring Break on March 24.
Socks are among the most needed items at homeless shelters, yet among the least-often donated. According to Tom Costello Jr., founder and “Chief Sock Person” at the Philadelphia-based nonprofit The Joy of Sox, even regular donors of clothing such as coats and pants will usually wear their own socks until they have holes and then throw them away. Because of the shortage, the nation’s homeless population is constantly at risk of serious foot disease and, during winter months, in severe danger posed by the cold. There are nearly 15,000 homeless in Camden County.
Socks are a "renewable need." This means that the need is constant. Homeless people put their socks through more wear and tear in a week than most socks see in a year. Most are forced to sleep with their shoes on to prevent them from being stolen. Most homeless spend most of their days walking as they are constantly being prodded to move along.
Socks will be delivered to homeless shelters throughout Camden County.

Notes from the School Nurse
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, common colds are the main reason that children miss school. Symptoms usually include sore throat, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, headaches and body aches. Most people recover within about 7-10 days.
There is no cure for a cold. To feel better, you should get lots of rest and drink plenty of fluids. Over-the-counter medicines may help ease symptoms but will not make your cold go away any faster. Always read the label and use medications as directed. Talk to your doctor before giving your child nonprescription cold medicines, since some medicines contain ingredients that are not recommended for children. Antibiotics will not help you recover from a cold. They do not work against viruses, and they may make it harder for your body to fight future bacterial infections if you take them unnecessarily.
If your child needs lozenges in school, please provide the medication in its original packaging with written permission.
