|November 14, 2012||Filled under Our Town||
The New England Federal Credit Union (NEFCU) and Community Health Centers of Burlington (CHCB) have announced plans to hold a Sock Drop during the month of November. The goal of the new event is to provide warm socks for CHCB’s patients and the homeless during Vermont’s long, cold winters.
“Sadly, we’re seeing more patients and homeless people in need of this critical clothing item,” noted Kim Anderson, development program manager. “Good socks can make such a difference during the harsh winters we experience.”
Donations of new, warm socks in adult sizes are being accepted at CHCB’s Riverside Avenue location in Burlington and at the following NEFCU locations: 141 Harvest Lane in Williston; 74 Pearl Street in Essex; 764 Shelburne Road in South Burlington; 150 Water Tower Circle, and 172 South Main Street in St. Albans.
“Sharing something as basic as socks can make a tremendous difference for our fellow Vermonters,” stated Cindy Morgan, NEFCU’s senior marketing executive. “NEFCU is pleased to be able to help CHCB with this very worthwhile effort.”
