Socks for Troops fundraiser returns
ESCANABA — Shoe Sensation is hosting its 4th annual “Socks For Troops” fundraiser company-wide. Last year, Shoe Sensation collected over 30,000 pairs of socks as a company. This year, each store will again be collecting socks for active duty military or local veterans. Shoe Sensation will have military approved socks to purchase and donate in store. Customers will also be able to bring in new socks to be donated.
“The holiday season is a tough time to be away from family and friends. This is no exception for the country’s military personnel. A small gesture can go a long way in providing them with comfort during the holidays. We appreciate the sacrifices our armed forces and their families make in their personal lives in order to protect our safety and our country’s interests. This is one way we can show our appreciation to the men and women who serve in our armed forces and to our Veterans that have served our country,” said David Bateman, community connections director and creator of the Socks for Troops program for Shoe Sensation.
The Socks for Troops Fundraiser will run from Nov. 1 though Dec. 31. Visit your local Shoe Sensation for details on where the socks will be delivered.
