Woman’s Club collecting sock donations

The Three Rivers Woman’s Club is expanding a project of warmth this winter, as its members are gearing up for their “Socks for the Sole” campaign.

The effort calls for collecting and distributing new or gently-used socks to those in need who come into the Three Rivers Food site.

Organizers said member Waneta Truckey volunteered at the site and saw a need in the community for socks. Truckey and fellow member Margaret Sykes created the goal of collecting and distributing 2,000 pairs of socks this winter.

With more than 400 pairs already collected and distributed, they are hopeful of reaching that goal.

Donations can be dropped off to the Three Rivers Food site anytime from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday or Thursday.
