Sock Drive to Support Vermont's Homeless
WILLISTON, VT - In an effort to support Vermont's homeless population this winter, Lenny's Shoe & Apparel is holding a sock drive now through Christmas.
Socks are being collected at Lenny's four stores and will be donated to adults, children and babies served by COTS at Christmas time.
The sock drive is the result of a joint effort between Lenny's and Zoe Lawrence, a CCV student from Central Vermont. "A few years ago, I read a shocking statistic: The number one under donated item at clothing drives are socks," said Zoe. "This is an item many people take for granted, as most of us have a drawer full of them. Wearing out quickly, especially through long Vermont winters, new socks are crucial."
