Students donate socks to assisted living facility

Lacy Student Council.

The Lacy Elementary Student Council participated in one of its several community service projects by collecting socks for the local assisted living facility. Students dropped by Villa Asuncion to donate 502 pair of socks.

While they were there, they also sang Christmas carols to the residents who were playing bingo in their activity room.

Students Kaydin Cordell and Jada Hughes, both in 5th grade, and Leslie Gonzalez, 4th grade, presented the presorted socks to the center’s activity director Teri Martinez.

Before leaving the facility, the students dropped off handmade Christmas cards they drew for residents to enjoy.

The Lacy Student Council consists of 3rd- through 5th-graders who were elected by their peers. The 5th-grade students on the executive council had to give a speech in front of the entire school, while class representatives had to give a speech in their classrooms before students voted on council members.

The group is sponsored by Tomika Mack, Maitee Helms, Christia Jones, Ryanne Dillard and Kari Foy.
