West Pensacola Elementary School will kick off its annual “Socktober” service project this month, with a goal of collecting 900 pairs of new socks this month..
Each year, West Pensacola Elementary celebrates Socktober during the month of October. Faculty, staff, students and families collect new socks to donate to nearby homeless shelters. Last year the school collected 816 pairs of new socks.
“At West Pensacola we say we have BIG hearts and strive to provide our students with opportunities to give back to our community,” stated West Pensacola Principal Christine Baker. “Socktober is a great event that allows our school to provide an often forgotten resource to others in our community!”
Donations can be dropped off at the school’s front office during regular hours, Monday through Friday. West Pensacola Elementary School is located at 801 N. 49th Avenue in Pensacola. For information, contact Kyle Kaye at 850.453.7470.
