DOVER — Students at Holy Cross School in Dover collected 335 pairs of socks during Catholic Schools Week, and the footwear was given to People’s Place of Dover.
People’s Place offers programs and resources to people as a way to get them on the path to “growth and independence,” according to the website. Among their offerings are victim-offender mediation; counseling; family visitation centers; a group home for girls; programs for victims of domestic violence; and veterans outreach.
The kindergarten class at Holy Cross had the responsibility of keeping tally of how many socks had been donated as Catholic Schools Week progressed. The school also held a silly socks day in addition to the collection.
