Students give the gift of warmth


Last year, St. Luke School fourth graders wanted to do something for those served by the Loaves and Fishes Ministry truck which delivers food, beverages, gently used clothes and new socks and underwear to the poor and homeless in Providence and Woonsocket. They dubbed the project “Sock-tober” and it ran for a month and was a success. This year grades 4 and 5 managed an expanded program with a goal of collecting 800 pair of men’s, women’s and children’s socks. They collected 956 pairs which were recently presented to Ed and Mary Fitzgerald who manage the Loaves and Fishes Ministry for the parish.
