Service Opportunities:

So here in PLP we will be collecting new socks from anyone who wants to donate between now and November 1st. The socks will then be delivered to LINK and HELP shelters here in Newport News. All donations can be brought to the PLP office and we will coordinate drop off at the shelters. It is a small gesture but it gets us started making an pair of socks at a time. Check out Kid President's call to action below:
