    Huron’s Funky Socks Sale

    Every other year, Huron High School’s student council hosts a sale on funky, patterned socks to students. The money raised from sock sales is donated to the organization We Help Two, which pays for specific students’ education in underdeveloped countries and gives socks to those in need in Washtenaw County.

    Isaac Gardner, co-president of student council, loves the “StuCo” tradition.

    “People often critique charities for either not helping those locally or not helping those across the globe who are most in need,” he said. “We Help Two makes it possible to do both. Also, the socks are patently radical. There are cute, quirky, and cool socks. The bottom line is, there is a pair of socks that you will want.”

    The socks themself come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, like “Funky Fiesta”, which includes three socks; one with scattered avocados, another with tacos, and the last with neon chillies. The socks are a comfortable and charitable way to keep your feet in style.

    “Socks are a foundational piece of the wardrobe,” Gardner said. “You need to buy socks no matter what. Sure you could buy a 6-pack of plain white Kirkland “premium” socks. You’d be lame for that, though. You could buy socks from StuCo that show your personality and help those in need. The latter is clearly a better choice.”

    Purchasing socks will be available until Nov. 29, 2023, and help fund Joel Wasswa’s education. Wasswa, from Kampala, Uganda’s father died of cancer, leaving his mother with five children. Wasswa hopes to become a policeman in the future. To support Wasswa, purchase the socks at http://www.go.wehelptwo.com/campaign/?campaignid=25131

    To quote the iconic Harry Potter series, Gardner shared wise words to encourage students to support: “One can never have enough socks.” – Albus Dumbledore.
