      Get ready to Rock the Socks

      Many Marquette County school districts and businesses will be joining the Marquette Alternative High School to ROCK THEIR SOCKS to raise awareness of the homeless and less fortunate in their communities.

      During the week of December 9-13, the following places will be drop-off sites for new sock donations.

      Marquette Alternative High School/Graveraet

      Marquette Senior High School

      Bothwell Middle School

      Sandy Knoll

      Superior Hills

      NMU School of Education

      Select Realty

      Elder Agency


      YMCA Early Childhood Program

      All collected socks will be donated locally, and the places they will go are chosen by each building.

      Last year the schools gave to places like Goodwill, St. Vincent DePaul Society, The Janzen House, The Womenâ??s Shelter, and our local elementary schools, to name a few. The idea is that this is a need that isnâ??t filled through any other drives, and is affordable for kids.

      Marquette Alternative High School created this event last year in Cindy DePetro's class.
