Warm Feet & Full Hearts: TCAPS Sock Drive Continues

“Socks is something that every student needs. And they need a lot of them throughout the year.”

The TCAPS sock drive is almost into its final week, but there is still time to donate.

Winter weather is here, which can lead to some major problems for students unable to afford necessities like a warm pair of socks.

The STEP Program at TCAPS works to support students in transitional living situations by providing them with essentials like clothing.

The sock drive is hosted by the TC Central Music Department, but donations are accepted at any TCAPS office until Friday.

STEP leaders say these donations mean more to students than just warm feet.

“We don’t ever want them to feel less than, and this sock drive. I know it seems small, but having nice socks? Having socks that don’t have holes in them, that are clean, that match, all of those things are kind of important,” says STEP specialist Andrea Ballast.

Sock donations will also be accepted at any school music concert until the 15.
