STAMFORD—Students at Turn of the River Middle School understand that cold feet and hole-y socks are a problem for those struggling to feed their families. Last week, they collected and donated 500 pairs of new socks to New Covenant House.
Eighth-grader Mason Perkins, the driving force behind the sock collection, is the local representative for Sox Warm Hearts, a national community outreach program that aims to give socks to those in need. Mason first spearheaded the drive in 2014, delivering 650 pairs of brand-new socks for NCH guests.
