Students take initiative to help homeless with successful service project

Posted:

St. Luke’s Parish in Barrington participates in the Loaves and Fishes Rhode Island ministry which delivers food, clothes and new socks and underwear to the homeless. Recently, the fourth grade class at St. Luke’s School came up with an idea to help this ministry. They decided to change the name of October to Sock-tober, with the ambitious goal of collecting 250 pairs of new socks for the homeless during the month. In 10 days they had collected 275 pairs of socks so they increased the goal to 500. By the end of the month they had collected an amazing and impressive 757 pairs of socks for homeless men, women and children in Rhode Island.
