To help those in need this holiday season, Polk Street School students participated in four separate donation drives from November through December.
Students in Girl Scout Troop 1383 hosted a socks/accessories drive for Hannah’s Socks, a non-profit organization that serves those affected by homelessness and poverty, low-income seniors, active military personnel, and underprivileged children in schools. The Girl Scouts also included positive handwritten messages in each pair of socks collected. More than 300 pairs of socks were donated.
Additionally, Polk students brought in toy donations for the Hance Family Foundation Toy Drive, the 31st annual John Theissen Children’s Foundation Holiday Toy Drive and Assemblyman Ed Ra's annual Holiday Toy Drive.
