Mustangs Proud: MXMS Collects Socks For Area Homeless Shelters

McGee's Crossroads Middle aspires to be a school with a giving mentality. As a result, the month of October was designated "Socktober." During "Socktober", students and staff were encouraged to bring new socks to school. These socks were then distributed to area homeless shelters. According to homeless shelters, socks are the number one requested item- especially with the approach of winter.

MXMS collected nearly 5,000 pairs of socks. The socks were donated to the Smithfield Rescue Mission, the Wilmington Street Center in Raleigh, and the Wake Women's Center.
