Socks for the Soul

By Ivy Story

Sockober is a clever combination of the word sock and October. The cause behind this clever name is touching and honorable. Sockober, of course, takes place during the month of October, the month that really starts to feel like fall. However, there are some out there who do not associate fall with leaves and pumpkin spice. They associate fall with a cold front. According to soulpancake.com, every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. Four years ago YouTube famous Kid President, Brad Montague, founded Sockober; and last year more than 10,000 schools, families, businesses, and churches participated.

By Ivy Story

Park rangers may serve as law enforcement officers, environmental experts, historians or a combination of the three.”
