Irmo High School students partner with Brookdale Harbison Assisted Living to support Providence Home

IRMOIrmo High School's Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) and Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) students completed a successful collaboration with Brookdale Harbison Assisted Living. Together, they help to collect socks for the residents of Providence Home, a heartwarming initiative that exemplifies the spirit of community service.


Providence Home, a local facility that offers care and support to individuals in need.  Irmo FCCLA and HOSA students recognized the importance of contributing to the well-being of their community, and they embarked on a mission to provide comfort and warmth to those in Providence Home.


In a remarkable display of teamwork and compassion, the student organizations rallied their school to collect socks for the cause during the month of October. Their efforts were met with enthusiastic participation, and the results were nothing short of astounding - over 100 pairs of socks were gathered to be donated to Providence Home.


This heartwarming initiative not only speaks to the giving spirit of Irmo's FCCLA and HOSA students but also highlights the significant impact that youth can have when they come together for a common cause. These young leaders understand that even the smallest acts of kindness can bring about positive change within their community.


The partnership with Brookdale Harbison Assisted Living was instrumental in making this project a reality. It exemplifies the power of collaboration between schools, assisted living facilities, and local businesses. The students, along with the seniors at Brookdale Harbison Assisted Living, demonstrated the significance of giving back to the community.


Students demonstrated their ability to show compassion and the value of community service. The Irmo FCCLA and HOSA students, along with Brookdale Harbison Assisted Living, have shown that by working together and extending a helping hand, they can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those less fortunate in their community. It is a testament to the power of collective kindness and the potential for positive change when a community comes together for a common goal. Irmo High School can be proud of its students' commitment to making the world a better place, one sock at a time.
