Crossett High School (CHS) Beta Club hosted SOCKTOBER this month.
The club wants fellow students to help the residents of Our House, a homeless shelter in Little Rock, by donating new socks, underwear for adults and children, deodorant, and washcloths.
Donating a pair of socks can make a drastic difference in the lives of people, a club spokesperson said.
Socktober began in October 2011, when Brad Montague realized there was a large homeless population in his hometown, and he wanted to do something about it. He learned that socks are the items least donated to homeless shelters. He began to filming himself wishing people “Happy Socktober” as he gave out pairs of socks on the streets.
This is one of many community service projects that CHS Beta Club members participate.
To become a Beta Club member, students must have a 3.0 and meet the other requirements by our sponsor Miss Kristin Morris.
