Here at P255@PEC, our Sock It To Me collection was a great success. Our families sent in socks and toiletry items for homeless people. These are the items that are the most needed. Our students sorted and bagged the items in the Vocational Education Program. In total, our school collected 692 pairs of socks along with toiletry items.
We had a school-wide contest to see which class sent in the most items. First Place was tied with Ms. Alyson and Ms. Susan’s classes winning a pizza party. In Second Place, was Ms. Julie’s class and third went to Ms. Tammy’s class.
Thank you to all our generous families. A big Thank you to our terrific paraprofessional, Tarris Bell, who initiated the project and will be delivering the items to homeless people on the streets of Manhattan.
