Sock and Sole Dance to Benefit In My Father's Kitchen

Students on the Character Council at TES took advantage of a great opportunity to do a little community outreach. Titled the Sock and Sole Dance, 5th and 6th graders were asked to bring donations of socks or personal hygiene items upon entering. These items, in turn, would be donated to In My Father’s Kitchen where they would be distributed among Syracuse’s homeless community. The Character Council was able to put twenty-two care bags together in addition to hundreds of socks that would be donated. Shortly after the dance, John Tumino, co-founder of IMFK, came to TES not only to receive the donation, but conduct an assembly for the 5th and 6th graders. Tumino took the time to talk with students about his mission, why his organization consistently asks for donations of socks, and what his day-to-day routine looks like. He explained to the students that, “It all started with a sandwich.” For more on INFK’s story, visit their website at inmyfatherskitchen.org.
