The South Perry Sock Drive is on

It's happening: the South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association and TEAM Grant is sponsoring a sock, boot, mitten and hat drive for the students at Grant Elementary - and what better time to get going than in the middle of the first big snow?
The blog will be at The Perry Street Café Thursday morning around 8, so come in and get a flier or a poster to put up at your place of work or worship.
Look for big collection bins at South Perry businesses - or drop your donation at Grant Elementary.
Around 90 percent of the students at Grant qualify for free or reduced lunch - a measure often used to determine the number of low-income students - and many come to school without boots, socks, tights and hats. The Parent Teacher Organization at Grant is also sponsoring the Perry Sock Drive (for short).
Please donate new or lightly used boots, socks, mittens, scarves and hats for the students - sizes needed are kindergarten and older.
If you are part of a knitting or sewing group and would like to donate homemade socks, hats and scarves, please e-mail the blog at
