Students and staff at John F. Kennedy Elementary School spent the month of October collecting new socks for the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless. The initiative was spearheaded by members of the school quality team and the student council. Each grade level competed to see who could collect the most socks. While second and third grades were declared the winners, everyone was a winner in the end with 1,149 pairs of socks collected to help the homeless across Long Island. The school also partnered with Bombas sock company. Bombas donated an additional 500 pairs of socks for the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless.
