East Coventry Sock Drive

East Coventry Student Council is holding a sock drive from January 18-28. Our goal is to collect at least 100 pairs of new socks to donate to the Joy of Sox foundation. This foundation helps supply socks to homeless shelters in our area. Socks are the number one needed item and the least donated. Please help keep our community warm and donate a pair of socks! We need adult and child-sized socks. Remember they need to be new socks and need to be brought in by January 28th. Collection boxes are located in each hallway. The class with the most socks collected will get to choose our next school-wide spirit day. We will also have crazy sock day on January 28th!! Thank you, Krishna Vyas for the graphic for the sock drive!
