The initiative, "Socks for the Troops," brought in roughly 100 pairs of socks which will be donated to county military members stationed overseas and to Tomorrow's Hope, a center located in Coalport for homeless veterans.
Over 100 pairs of socks were collected recently for county military members stationed outside the continental United States and for homeless veterans living at Tomorrow's Hope, a center located in Coalport.
A collection box was set up at Shoe Sensation for the second straight year along the Million Dollar Highway in St. Marys.
