WES Warm Feet Are Happy Feet
Wed, January 11, 2017
Watauga Elementary School GATE students recently sponsored a school-wide Sock Hop to gather donations for a community service project which provided 470 pairs of warm socks to the homeless across our area.
Students donned their festive socks for the dance and also made Christmas cards to include with each pair of socks. GATE students researched the items of greatest need for the homeless and found that socks were the least donated and the most needed item for many. Director of Faith in Action, Cathy Lowe, spoke to students and encouraged them to assist service projects within the community for the needy. GATE students also wrote and produced a public service announcement video about the Joy of Socks which was shared with the student body before everyone enjoyed the Sock Hop. Watauga Elementary students also donated socks to the Haven of Rest Rescue Mission and the Soul’s Harbor Warm Bundle Project.
