Over two weeks just prior to Thanksgiving, the students at PS/MS 146Q in Howard Beach held a sock drive, aptly named #socksgiving. By spreading the word through the PTA and to the parents, the school was able to collect 216 pairs of socks of all sizes to keep families warmer during the holiday season.
“Today marked the end of our #socksgiving holiday drive, as we are giving in the donation tomorrow to a local shelter,” said Kayleen Estevez, the program director of the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Queens at PS/MS 146Q, who coordinated the effort. “I just wanted to thank you for all of your support.”
Making a difference
Under the leadership of Mrs. Maura Stone, PS 146Q’s 3K, pre-K and kindergarten collected 64 pairs of pajamas to donate to children in need. The school would like to thank all of the families who donated and for teaching the young children about the importance of doing good for others. With both collections, the students showed the spirit of the holiday season — giving to others!
