Minot Education Association teacher Holly Dewitz of Perkett Elementary started a sock drive in 2018 that has grown to include the entire district. This year, MEA collected 5,400 pairs of socks that they will donate to the Minot Area Homeless Coalition.

People don’t realize the huge homeless population we have right here in Minot Public Schools, right in the classroom. Kids are living in their cars. They’re living in motels. They’re staying with friends and family. These socks benefit kids right here in our community and our schools.

The sock drive began in 2018 when Dewitz and her class were thinking of random acts of kindness they could perform in the community.
