    The young lady pictured above is Angel. She is six years old, loves to sing, has a pet rabbit, and lives in Uganda. During the month of October, we are selling funky socks so her school tuition, uniform, and daily breakfast and lunch can be paid for.

    Join us for our fourth annual CAS project through We Help Two and Vanguard IB Socktober 2019! You can get your socks from a Socktober Team Member on campus for only $10 a pack, or you can order below online for only $12 a pack. And as an added bonus, for every pack of funky socks sold, we receive a pair of thick, warm socks to donate here in Marion County.

    During the 2017-2018 school year, Vanguard IB had the opportunity to help these two young men receive artificial limbs thanks to our partnership with We Help Two and our annual Socktober event. These two young men's lives have been changed forever! We were also able to donate close to 100 pairs of warm socks to the ICU at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. THANK YOU to everyone who purchased socks back in October 2017 and helped us reach our goal. We look forward to hosting this CAS project again this coming fall and to having another successful Socktober event!
