Since the end of November, as a way to battle the shortage of socks among numerous people, the Sock Drive reaches Clague.

While winter approaches with piercing cold winds and icy temperatures, bundling up with hats, coats, mittens – and socks – starts to become necessary. Unfortunately, these items, especially socks, are not accessible to everyone in need. Since the end of November to Dec. 22, as a way to battle the shortage of socks among numerous people, the Sock Drive reaches Clague.

“I think the sock drive is a great way to give back to the community,” Clague 7th grader, Roya McAllister said. “I’m so proud of Clague for hosting an event like this!”

This drive is returning for its fourth year, overseen by Teira Massey, a teaching assistant at Clague, who has been initiating this event. From recent years, Clague has collected an impressive amount of 2,000 pairs of socks. To achieve this again, a sock drive has also been held at Off The Top, a barber shop in Ypsilanti. 

“I am a community activist,” Massey said. “I inspire and empower communities to make sure they are safe, sound, and have [the] things that they need.”

The sock drive continues to provide a pair to those who can not acquire them. All donations will be given to local churches, Washtenaw foster care homes, and the Ozone house – a shelter and support center for youth. 

“Socks are often an overlooked item, “ Clague Spanish teacher Andrea Jakubowski said.“Clean new pairs of socks can provide someone with warmth and a sense of dignity.”

If you want to support this drive, donate a new pair of socks to the big bin in the main lobby of Clague.
