Socks for la mesa elementary

Ministry Leader: Mary Berger

  • St. Stephen’s has supported La Mesa Elementary School since 2014 by providing socks for students who will receive donated shoes. La Mesa is located at 7500 Copper NE and has many low income students. 


  • General Mills has provided 100 to 150 pairs of shoes since 2014 and in 2018 Rack in the Room donated an additional 100 pairs of shoes to needy students. St. Stephen’s has provided three to four pair of new socks to each student. 


  • The La Mesa school counselor and staff identifies students in need and provides the shoe size for the student. St. Stephen’s also participates in fitting the students with their new shoes and socks at a time coordinated by the school counselor.
