Community Heroes ROCKED Socktober! Three of our participating schools (Vallecito, Dixie and Sun Valley Elementary) delivered 2,500 pairs of socks to Downtown Streets Team at their weekly team meeting, their largest sock donation EVER!
They also heard updates from the team members (new job, new apartment, etc.) and got a sense of the strong community among team members, who welcomed us warmly and thanked everyone for their efforts. It was a valuable experience for all who attended and we hope to deepen our partnership with DST, including doing another project or two together for our annual Day of Giving in March 2019.
