Socktoberfest Returns to Curtain Intermediate

The community came back to Curtin Intermediate School on Friday night to help “kick it to poverty” with the return of SOCKTOBERFEST.

The kickoff event launched the school’s month-long sock drive to benefit Lycoming County’s homeless.

Better known as #socktober, the movement began four years ago by Kid President and Soul Pancake to help the homeless around the U.S.

The event included many free activities, such as a bounce house, Sock-er Golf, a bike safety session with an obstacle course, a meet-and-greet with local homeless shelter officials, challenges, yard games and art stations.

The school’s PTO also sold concessions to help raise funds for the school, with a percentage of its proceeds going to area homeless shelters. Many of those who attended brought new packages of socks to jumpstart donations.

Last October, the school collected 3,000 pairs of socks. This year, the school hopes to collect 3,500 pairs.
