NJHS Sponsors SOCKTOBER Event at AES

NJHS Members John Ulricson, Justin Collins, Trent Sargent and Eden Fuller proudly
show the results of their Socktober Drive.

As part of their ongoing commitment to community service, members of the AES National Junior Honor Society encouraged

students and staff to participate in Socktober.  According to the Socktober website, every night in the United States, an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets and socks are the least donated item to homeless shelters. Nationally the sponsors’ goal was to have 2 million people prove that even a small act of love, such as donating a pair of socks, can make big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.

Armed with this knowledge, they set up sock collection sites in the school.  Thanks to the generosity of students, parents and staff the sock collection was an overwhelming success.  The donated items will be distributed at a local homeless shelter.
