Each year WSGE participates in the annual Sock Drive along with Community Leaders and Volunteers. Families throughout the United States became involved with the “Socks for Seniors” project in 2002. Since that time the Socks for Seniors sock drive has grown tremendously and has become a nationwide network.

The holidays are a fun time of year with all the holiday work parties, family gatherings, meetings with old friends topped off with all the bells, whistles, hustle and bustle of the season. It’s the friendliest and most giving time of year.

But, for some it can also be a depressing time of year. Our seniors can get lost in the shuffle.

Each year, thousands of lonely and financially challenged seniors struggle with the holiday blues. They dread facing the holiday season alone – some being without family or friends, some with the isolation of being a widow or widower. Some seniors just being away from children and grandchildren produces extreme loneliness that’s exaggerated by festivities of the season.  So join the WSGE family to provide a little Holiday Cheer this year!

You can deliver items to the WSGE Office on Gaston College’s Campus (Craig Building, Room 115) or you can mail them to WSGE Radio: Socks for Seniors, 201 Highway 321 South, Dallas, NC 28034.  The deadline to bring your donation is Thursday, December 14th.  

Thank you for being a part of Socks for Seniors and the WSGE community.
