"Sock it to Homelessness" Community Drive Nets 400 Pairs of Socks

Students in the Law Enforcement and Public Safety Magnet Program recently held a ‘Sock it to Homelessness’ drive to collect pairs of socks for the unhoused. The Manalapan High School community pulled together and about 400 pairs of socks were donated.

Jeanne Marinello, a volunteer with the Blessing Bag Brigade, stopped by the school to collect the socks and discuss the community outreach program's efforts in aiding the unhoused. Ms. Marinello encouraged all students to get involved in helping their community in some way. The donated socks will be included in future bags distributed to those in need by Blessing Bag Brigade volunteers.
