Sun City “Socktober” Warms

Feet and Hearts

 

 

 Sounds of James Brown belting out the chorus “I feel good” reverberated throughout Sun City Elementary’s gymnasium as students danced, jumped and celebrated how good it made them feel to help others.

As part of the district’s “Helping Hearts: The Power of We” community service initiative, Sun City deemed the month of October “Socktober” and collected more than a thousand pairs of socks, underwear, t-shirts, toiletries, personal hygiene items and more for the Providence House.

 Partnering with Sun City was Red River Development League, a soccer league in South Bossier whose mission is to integrate sports and the community.  

“The idea is to teach our kids not only to be good soccer players but to develop good character and becoming good citizens. Knowing where there’s a need in your community and fulfilling it,” said Rachel Clark, one of the founders of the RRDL. “Our end goal is the same with schools; to produce productive citizens.”

 Clark got wind of Socktober after hearing her mom talk about it. Lea Clark is the Assistant Principal at Sun City.

 “We’re all about getting as involved in the community in South Bossier as we can and businesses and everyone helps,” Lea Clark added.

 Suzanne Sims with the Providence House told the kids during an assembly the warm socks and other items would help tremendously.

 “We have 73 families with 144 kids. We haven’t needed socks because of the season we’ve been in,” Sims said. “Kids have run around barefoot and in sandals and didn’t need socks.”

 Now, with morning temperatures below 32 degrees, they are glad to have socks to keep their feet warm.

  Sun City Principal Kimberly Tuminello said students really got motivated to help after viewing Kid President’s inspirational video messages, particularly the one in which he declared “Doing nothing is a great way to change nothing.”

 

  “I was happy they saw the importance and rose to the challenge,” Tuminello said. “I think we’re producing a society of helpers.”

 

 “For kids to step forward and pay attention to the things that adults have learned not to pay attention to is humbling,” Sims added. “It’s also inspiring.”

Airmen Feel the Love

From W.T. Lewis

 

 Making ends meet between paychecks is oftentimes difficult for young airmen and their families at Barksdale Air Force Base. Thanks to the W.T. Lewis Bulldogs, stretching their dollars and stocking their pantries will be a little easier.

 W.T. Lewis chose to support the Airman’s Attic as part of Bossier Schools’ “Helping Hearts: The Power of We” community service initiative. Airman’s Attic is a food pantry at the base that provides military members with staples as well as other items they may need but cannot always afford.

 The Bulldogs not only donated canned goods, but also toys, games, puzzles, backpacks and books for military-connected children. A “jeans day” was also held to raise funds and the school hosted a book drive to collect new reading material.

 As a result of those efforts, Principal Lisa Burns and Assistant Principal Jody Kaiser presented a check for $346 to Stefanie Markin, a representative of the Barksdale Airman’s Attic, as well as the many boxes of non-perishable food items, toys, books and more.

 For more information about the Barksdale Airman’s Attic, visit their Facebook page.

 Way to go, W.T. Lewis Bulldogs for filling a need and helping hearts!
