News - Socktober

Annabelle was a fifth grader last year at Woodridge Elementary. She got the idea for “Socktober” from the Kid President videos. With the help of her mother, Jaye, who works at the school, she made posters and she did morning announcements to get Woodridge involved in the sock drive.

She has since moved on to Chinook Middle school but her mom still works at Woodridge Elementary and wanted to carry on the tradition of Socktober. She asked current fifth graders Paige and Lucy to head up the drive this year, and they eagerly jumped on the opportunity!

They poured their heart and soul into the sock drive by staying in for recess and making posters, counting socks and doing morning announcement reminders. We have a local family in our neighborhood who owns FiveLo socks. They donated about 400 pairs of socks and arm socks. So the girls hard work brought in over 900 pairs of socks!

Thank you to Annabelle, Lucy, Paige, Jaye, and everyone at Woodbridge Elementary who donated! You have made a huge difference in the lives of so many women!
