Members of the H.O.P.E. Club exceeded their goal for this year’s “Sock It To ‘Em Drive.” Over 6 weeks this fall, the generosity of the Academy community yielded 700 pairs of socks which were donated to Elijah’s Promise in New Brunswick. Donna Toryak, Director of Enrollment Management and H.O.P.E. Club Advisor, stated, “With winter coming, surely these will come in handy to assist this community outreach organization and ensure the warmth and comfort of their clients. Thank you again to all who have filled our boxes, baskets, and bags with colorful, warm, heavy, and durable socks in all sizes for all ages! Where there is a need, you always answer the call, and we appreciate all you do to share with others.” Pictured in the first photo, left to right, are Leadership Team members: Payton Kochanski '23, Nicole Parisi '24, and Vanessa Kosuda '24.
