So Grateful for the Socks 

 

We have filled 2 big bins with socks for the soup kitchen, and are in the process of filling a third.  I am so grateful for all of our generous customers who have donated new white (and colors) men’s socks.  Dry socks are a necessity for the homeless- especially in the winter season.  We will continue our collection through the end of the year.  Laura Howell is distributing these socks through the soup kitchen and overnight shelter in Bethlehem.  They are so appreciated.

Thank you all.
