Third Graders Help OthersThird Graders in Ms. Dotson's class at Emma Elementary collected and donated more than 650 pairs of socks for homeless people in the Asheville area. The class decided on the project when they learned that socks are one of the most needed yet most under-donated items for the homeless community. Students wrote letters to their families and to their Ecclesia Baptist Church book buddies explaining the project and requesting sock donations. The students found support for their project from their book buddies, their families, and current and former members of the Emma Elementary School staff. By early November, the staff at AHope (a day center for homeless people) was busy distributing the socks that these awesome third graders had collected.
