Aikin and Justiss Socrates 4th graders recently participated in a service project for Hurricane Florence relief that directly impacts the elderly in the Carolinas.

The students discovered the AARP Foundation was matching monetary donations so they hosted Fall Festival booths and collected $255 which will be matched for a total of $510 by AARP.

Socrates teacher Tammy King said, “The local AARP members were impressed with the students’ empathy and willingness to help others.”
