Managing and teaching in a shelter child center

Sock drive!

The children at my center heard about a friend of mine who is collecting socks for kids like them in Oregon. they know how it feels to need clean socks. So the 4 year old Pre-k class want to start a sock drive.

Their goal is to have 50 pairs of socks by the end of September. Socks need to be new, obviously. they want men’s, women’s boys and girls socks, because “sometimes Daddies are in shelter too”.

I am so proud of my class. These are kids who are in shelter themselves, and have very little to give. But they want to make other kids more comfortable. And they came up with the idea themselves. It didn’t come from an adult telling them what to do.
