Drive underway to ensure warm socks for Chelan students

by Dennis Rahm

The Associated Student Body at Chelan Middle School is in the midst of a drive to make sure students in need in the district have warm socks for the winter. Dubbed Hearties for Socks, the CMS Leadership classes are asking for donations of new socks, or cash to help purchase socks

Six leadership students spent time in downtown Chelan last Friday handing out flyers and asking for donations on the opening day of Winterfest. In just over an hour they were able to raise $300. In addition, new sock donations have also been received at the middle school.
Donations are still needed and if you have new socks or money to contribute you can do so at Chelan Middle School, Morgan Owings Elementary, or at the District office.  For those who would like to mail a donation, they can be sent to CMS ASB Sock Drive, 215 W Webster, Chelan, WA 98816. Checks can be made out to CMS ASB. The sock drive will continue through Sunday, January 23rd. Go Pirates!
