Donate to Socks for Seniors!
Each year WSGE coordinates a Socks for Seniors drive to benefit residents in local nursing homes and the homeless in Gaston County shelters. Families and organizations throughout the United States became involved with the “Socks for Seniors” project in 2002. Since that time the project 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!
We are accepting socks, gloves and toiletries through Friday, Dec. 8. They can be delivered to WSGE Radio located on the Dallas Campus of Gaston College (Craig Arts and Sciences Building, Room 115) or you can mail them to WSGE Radio, 201 Highway 321 South, Dallas, NC 28034. Thank you for caring and supporting the Seniors and homeless in our community!
