The Joy of Sox Founders Visit

This week, we had a visit from the founders of The Joy of Sox foundation. They spoke to the girls about their foundation and the service project that we will be participating in during Catholic Schools Week here at school as a way of giving back to others. We will be collecting new socks for the homeless in our area. Students and teachers took part in a presentation that helped to show the girls how important it is to give back to those in need and just how important a pair of warm socks is to those less fortunate than us. Ask your daughter!

The Joy of Sox is a locally founded nonprofit mission of giving joy and new socks to those experiencing homelessness. There are 10,000 men, women and children experiencing homelessness in the Philadelphia region. They are desperately in need of new socks that are rarely donated. There are few shelters where new socks are available. Those experiencing homelessness suffer the extremes of hot and cold weather. Socks can be more important than food.

Villa will begin collecting new socks beginning Monday, January 29, and any student who brings a pair on Monday will be able to participate in Crazy Sock Day! Last year, Villa donated over 1300 pairs of socks and we are hoping we can beat that this year!

Thank you to The Joy of Sox for sharing your story with us and to the fourth grade for sponsoring this service project.
