More Than a Thousand Pairs of Socks Donated

One thousand seventy-four pairs of socks — that is how many the wonderful children of SFA collected for the Palisade Emergency Residence Corporation (PERC) shelter, in time for the upcoming cold season. Thank you to everyone at SFA who helped make this drive a success, including the 8th graders who carried them all to the delivery vehicle.

The shelter was so happy to receive such a generous donation. They actually had no socks left in their sock bin, so this came at a perfect time. The workers at the shelter were truly touched by the generosity of the students of SFA.

From the PERC Shelter website:

Shelter and Soup Kitchen Supplies Urgently Needed!
Our overnight shelter and soup kitchen are open 7 nights a week, 365 days a year. We are constantly in need of supplies. Every month, we go through approximately 6,000 disposable cups, 4,800 disposable plates and 88 pounds of coffee – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

We also distribute warm items, toiletries, socks, underwear and many other emergency items to homeless individuals and families throughout Hudson County.
