Go Near Ministry is THANKFUL for the 3rd grade teachers and students at Pulaski Academy. Last October, the students celebrated Socktober and gathered 665 pairs of socks  that we gave to children in Kenya this summer. I returned to PA (my alma mater) this week  to collect hundreds of pairs of socks from this year’s class to distribute on future trips. The students were eager to learn about life in Africa and as you can see in the video, they were so excited to share with the children in Africa.

Enjoy these three short videos that highlight  Go Near Ministry and Pulaski Academy working together to care for children across the world.
