Salinas City classified employees are "socking" their homeless students
They're the secretaries, bus drivers, custodians, and cafeteria workers who pave the road for Salinas City School District students to receive an education. And last month, they collected over 1,000 pairs of socks for the homeless children in their district. Last year they collect teddy bears. Cheryl Camany, director of the homeless program, told the employees there was a need for socks, so classified employees launched a campaign called "sock it to them with love". Rosy Arroyo donated over 200 pairs of socks.
"With all the cuts coming our way, we never know when maybe a classified employee will be homeless," said Rosalie Sanchez, Migrant ID&R/Health Coordinator and public relations officer for the district CSEA chapter.
