On Monday, students at the Brownstone Intermediate School duct taped their principal to a wall after collecting more than 1,000 pairs of socks for the homeless.
The 220 students in the fifth and sixth grade successfully celebrated “Socktober,” by collecting almost 1,200 pairs of socks for those in need.
To celebrate more than doubling their goal, Principal Laurie Boske agreed to let the students duct tape her to the wall in the lunch room.
“This is a lot of fun and it's a great way to celebrate Socktober,” Boske said.
"Well, it's really crazy and really fun,” said fifth grade student Anna Fantoli.
Rachel Brown was a top collector from one classroom.
"It's going to a good cause so I think it's a good thing to do,” Brown said.
"There are over 600,000 people that are homeless in the United States and a pair of socks would make someone happy,” Boske added.
"I think they said it best, it's for a good cause, and they’ve got big hearts,” said fifth grade teacher Bob Dudko.
The students had a great day celebrating with piles of socks that headed to local shelters and organizations.
