We did it because of you, Tri-Cities! It came to my attention that numerous area organizations have difficulty keeping socks on hand (on feet) so we created Sock Stock 2018 and set out to fill the new Island Van with socks and boy, did we!
Thanks to you we collected over 2000 pairs of socks. I can’t even believe that. After sorting and counting here are the final stats:
2,355 pairs of socks.
– 862 pair of Men’s socks
– 374 pair of Women’s socks
– 368 pair of Boy’s socks
– 543 pair of Girl’s socks
– 167 pair of Infant socks
– 11 pair of Diabetic socks
– 30 pair of Christmas socks
We delivered the socks on Christmas Eve to our 7 partner agencies among which includes, Hope Harbor, Crisis Center, Boys Town, Salvation Army and Vet’s Hospital.
We are incredibly thankful for the outpouring of generosity this community has shown to help provide this basic necessity. FanTAStic job Central Nebraska!
