SOCK DRIVE FOR TROOPS

Troops serving overseas often receive care packages from home containing food, magazines, toiletries, and other necessary items.  Carol Pigg, a volunteer with the Molly’s Adopt a Sailor organization, said troops are often in need of socks.  When soldiers are serving overseas, local people are often contracted to do their laundry and sometimes socks are missing when the laundry is returned.  Soldiers do not always have access to a store or facility to buy new socks.  Carol said they hope to collect 1,000 new pairs of socks by the end of April. For a list of drop-off locations or to get more information, call Carol at 972-9131.
