Book Club Donates to Rockford Rescue Mission

On Oct. 5th, Book Club discussed the book Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate. In the book, the main character, Jackson, is about to be homeless again. His father is sick and his mother has lost her job due to cut backs. Through the help of his imaginary friend, Crenshaw, Jackson learns to cope with the uncertainty of his future. During their garage sale, they are helped by kind strangers. The club wanted to help the homeless also.

Book Club members brought in gently used items, from their room at home. These items were then donated to the Rockford Rescue Mission for homeless and needy families.

As an all school project, on October 14th, we had a crazy socks day to support Annie’s Locker. It was a fun day for everyone! We paid a dollar to be able to wear crazy socks to school. There were all sorts of wild and crazy socks all over the school. $346.65 was raised.

The money will go to supply local elementary schools with 300 pairs of gym shoes and socks. They will be worn by students that don’t have proper footwear for gym class due to poverty or homelessness.
