Feed the Children runs a Teacher Store where teachers can shop for their classrooms FOR FREE! Each teacher is given a reusable bag to fill with supplies they need such as: books, markers, bulletin board materials, and furniture. Sock It to Me donated over 8,500 pairs of socks to Feed the Children’s Bend, Oregon location.
The schools that these Teacher Stores serve are all title one where 50% of the students need assistance to be able to get lunch. Many teachers have been using our socks as unique prizes to hand out to students. They say these unique socks help with the students’ self-esteem and individuality CEO Keven Hagan said of the donation, “Sometimes we forget just how much something simple, like a pair of socks, can change a child’s life. Often times, parents of low-income families struggle to provide essential items that children need. For many of us, a pair of socks is simply a pair of socks, but to a child in need, that one pair of socks is so much more. That pair of socks represents the hope of a brighter future to come.”
