NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Kid President is a popular series of 'You Tube' video that is being viewed by young people.

The child actor is an inspiration for many worthy projects including one going on now at Nacogdoches ISD's Martin Center.

It's called “Socktober.”

This scene from the school's second floor walkway gives you a clue about what it's all about.

Martin Center students wore crazy socks today to promote their collection of donated socks.

The drive started with only student donations. They now want to involve the entire community.

“This month is Socktober, and we're raising socks to help the homeless keep their feet warm during the winter months and do what we can to help the community,” said Destiny Ferguson, a Socktober leader.

“And so everybody gets together and tries to put their share, and everybody puts socks together, and we all try to help out, so every kid that doesn't have socks can have a pair of socks on their feet,” said Nick Malik, a Socktober leader.

Socktober is partnering with Nacogdoches Mpact. That program will distribute some of the socks to foster children.

You can help out by dropping off your sock donation at the Martin Center just north of TJR Elementary.
