Happy Socktober!
Posted on 10/06/2020
Welcome to Socktober! Where the feet are cold, but the donors and volunteers are oh-so warm-hearted!

As the weather turns colder, and as kids continue to grow and grow, we know some families will struggle to keep their active kids in socks that are winter-ready. Can you help?

We are seeking new, unopened packages of socks of all sizes. From our smallest pre-k kiddos to our tallest, adult-sized teens. Our greatest need at the moment is for boys' (size adult large) socks.

Donations of new socks will be accepted at Memorial Education Center, 825 S. Pearl, during school hours. If you'd like to form a Socktober Sock Drive at your office, church or club, we support your decision! Let us know how we can help, and we are happy to make it work. Please reach out to Bright Futures Joplin coordinator Sarah Coyne at 417-625-5200, ext. 2031, with questions or to schedule a donation. 

The sponsors, donors, volunteers and friends of Bright Futures Joplin are the best around, and we know it's all because you care about the success of Joplin students. Thank you for showing up, again and again, when the going gets tough (and when the feet get cold!).
