FALLBROOK ‚Äď Fallbrook Street School students held a Sock Drive during the month of January in order to serve the needs of the underprivileged or homeless who cannot afford new socks.

The students and their families collected over 200 pairs of new socks.

Aligning their efforts with the leadership training they have been receiving, students practiced being proactive by collectively reaching out to those in need through the Sock Drive.

the cold winter nights," said Fallbrook Street School teacher Lilly Ellefsen who, along with other fourth grade teachers, organized the event.

Despite the temperate nights, students brought in new socks by the dozens while they held sock rallies, painted signs promoting the event, and competed with one another to see which classroom would bring in the most socks. The winning class was to receive a popcorn party.

The socks will be donated to Brother Bennoís in Oceanside.
