‘Point in Time’ Count: The Sock Club

Sydney Edgecomb

Earlier this month, the Sock Institute–a cross-grade level outreach club dedicated to service learning projects–and Laguna Experiential Learning Coordinator and English teacher Ms. Tidey volunteered to survey the county’s homeless with a “point in time” count, a “homeless census” which occurs every two years. Laguna volunteers were assigned to interview and collect information from the homeless community at Alameda Park, using a smartphone app to gather data.

“How meaningful it was to be all together, and to have the chance to watch students extend themselves with humility and grace,” Ms. Tidey explains.

Last Friday, club members also met at lunch with Dr. Mimi Doohan, M.D., Ph.D. and founder of Doctors Without Walls–to debrief  on Laguna‘s participation in the SB PIT count. The club also discussed partnering with Kiki Tolles, President of the Global Fund for Women Club, to provide support to the Women’s Free Homeless Clinic at Transition House, which was also founded by Dr. Doohan.
This evening (2/16), the Sock Club is headed to Alameda Park again, this time with offerings of boots and walking shoes for those in need.
Laguna is full of gratitude for the Sock Institute’s service to the community.
