Bell Elementary School students gave the gift of feeling cozy and warm this holiday season.  They have collected over 1,400 pairs of socks to provide the Children's Advocacy Center, East Texas Crisis Center, and the Methodist Children's Home in Tyler. 

For the past three weeks, students have donated socks of all sizes, from infant to adult. Their original goal was to collect 100 pairs of socks. With generosity from all the students, staff, parents, and the Christmas spirit, they have exceeded their goal.
