I am the new school counselor for a school district who needs your help. I serve 345 students between kindergarten and 12th grade. When speaking to my incredible middle school students about what would make their school lives easier...they said access to clean socks and underwear. My students are incredible for thousands of reasons. We live in a very remote, rural town where students love hiking, fishing, hunting, and camping as favorite hobbies. Sports, of course, are a huge part of our school as well!
Please take a moment to think about your favorite hobbies and how that could be impacted by wearing stained socks and underwear with holes.
Supplying students with clean underwear and socks so they can start each day feeling clean and confident. Students should never have to share socks and underwear with siblings or parents but that is something that many students at my school deal with.
Many students have confided in me that their socks are often stained and have holes.
Undressing in the locker room often puts these insecurities front and center. Going to a friend's house can be devastating if you need to remove your shoes. Please help my students feel confident during their middle school and high school years.
Take three seconds to consider how your life would be impacted by lack of underwear and socks.
