ASL turns Cents to Socks
October 10, 2017
Hurricane Harvey has caused devastation in Houston, Texas and Southern Louisiana. People have lost everything they have.
Through Sept. 7-22, ASL Club collected socks that Matthew 25 Ministries will send to people in need.
“After the hurricane hit Texas, I was watching the news and a segment interviewing Matthew 25 Ministries as to what could be donated was discussed. Matthew 25 Ministries stated that most people think about donating clothes but socks are usually not included,” said Mrs. Nicole Price, ASL teacher.
Monetary donations will also be accepted and will go toward buying more socks.
These donations were collected in the commons during lunch. There were also volunteers walking around with envelopes to collect monetary donations.
Mr. Benjamin Tilton’s Aviator Bell brought in the most socks (363 pairs) and will be awarded a pizza party, while the individual who brought in the most socks, junior Danazia Monroe with 50 pairs, will be awarded a $35 certificate to The Hanger.
The Kroger Pharmaceutical Department at Kroger Company in Blue Ash is also starting a collection to donate.
“My mom is also doing the cents to socks campaign [at her work] to go along with our school’s campaign and they will be donating it all to us as we will take it down to Matthew 25,” said Malinda Sweeney, 12.
The drive concluded having raised $560.34, which will be used to buy 648 pairs of socks. Along with the socks collected, they will be able to donate 1.228 pairs.
If you are looking for additional ways to make a difference, consider volunteering at Matthew 25 Ministries. While helping those in need, you can gain volunteer hours.
