Kids Drop Underwear at School!

Feb 7, 2012  |     |   General

Kids at Hickory Hill Elementary are not afraid to drop (off) their underwear at school…uh…that is new underwear for those in need. Led by the Student Council they collected new underwear and socks for those staying at Open Door Mission. Lydia House, at Open Door Mission, was especially appreciative as most of the underwear collected was for children living with their family at Lydia House. Lydia House has 46 families seeking safe shelter and hope for a new life.

The Student Council took to heart and action when asked “how would you like to wear someone else’s underwear?” at their meeting in December. They began collecting to make a difference in the lives of children in a very basic and simple way-new underwear. Would you like your school, organization, group or work place to make a difference in the lives of others? Please call me to have a speaker come and share about basic needs at Open Door Mission or to set up a drive to collect needed items. You might just be surprised to find out how a new pair of socks or underwear can give hope to someone.
