Supervisor Russell Stamper II Calls for More New Socks for Families

Second Annual Socks Drive to Benefit Milwaukee County Adults and Children

By - Sep 5th, 2013 01:11 pm

(MILWAUKEE) – Milwaukee County Supervisor Russell Stamper II, who kicked off his second annual Socks Drive in August, issued a call for new socks saying that he is attempting to reach a goal of 500 by Sunday, September 8.

“We are now in the final stages of collecting socks, but we still need your help,” Stamper said. “I encourage you to bring your brand new socks donation to our Second Annual Socks Drive Wrap-up Ceremony from 1pm to 4pm on Sunday, September 8th at the Uptown Community Garden of Peace, located at 2321 N. 45th Street.”

Last year, the drive donated over 500 pairs of socks to the families of the Children’s Hospital Sickle Cell Disease Program. To ensure our families are prepared before the cold weather returns, Supervisor Stamper hopes to reach the same number of donations for adults and children.

“We are still looking to reaching our goal of 500 pairs of socks,” Stamper said. “We are not quite there yet, but we look forward to reaching our goal this Sunday. These socks are going to needy families throughout Milwaukee County. It warmed my heart to see the smiles on the family’s faces as we handed them socks last year, and I hope to see even more smiling faces this year.”

The Socks Drive Wrap-up Ceremony will also feature food, a meet and greet with the County Supervisor and raffle prizes.
