Some Bowie Elementary students in Harlingen are giving back to those who need help.
The students decided on giving back by providing socks to help keep people’s feet warm.
“Bowie Student Council we always do fundraisers and we just thought we needed to do something as a service project. We do something for the community, we do something for the school. So, this is just a little way of us to give back to the community,” said Heyward.
The idea actually came from one of the students on campus.
“We here at Bowie we know it’s very important to give back to our community. So, at a student council meeting, we were brainstorming some ideas on how to give back to our community, and we came up with the sock drive,” said Sophia Galan.
When asked why to do the sock drive, Galan said, “because winter is coming, it gets very cold and some children don’t have socks to warm their feet. So, we thought of the sock drive and it would help them warm their soles.”
