A group of 5th grade Ferson Creek students who refer to themselves as the Positive Puppies are out to prove that even the smallest acts of love can make a BIG difference in the lives of those who need help.

Every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets, and the Positive Puppies want to team with you to do something awesome to support these individuals!

The Positive Puppies are collecting New Socks, in original packages between Wednesday, October 11th and Friday, October 27th to be donated to a local homeless shelter at the end of the month. All sizes (men, women & children), shapes, and colors are needed.

All socks can be placed in the Socktober bin just outside the office.
