05-06-2013 (CROSSROADS) - Students at Crossroads have engaged in numerous community service projects this school year - both on and off-campus.  One newly-formed group of students at the school provides the latest example for us, crafting sock animals for children at local hospitals and metro shelters.

The seven-member, all-female group continues to map out its plan for dissemination.  But so far, the focus has been on the task at hand: crafting items designed to bring joy to the under-appreciated.

"The motivation and hard-work I've seen from these students is incredible.  They have truly been self-starters on this project, recognizing a need in our area," teacher and faculty sponsor Ms. Nicole Harris said. 

Harris says almost three-dozen sock animals have been created during Crossroads' "Personal Development" time.  She plans to personally deliver them once students complete construction in the next two weeks.

The sock animal project joins outreach efforts at Crossroads this year including Habitat for Humanity projects; volunteerism at the Firehouse Shelter; and numerous volunteer hours by students at local humane societies.
