Shoe Sensation collecting socks for troops
Shoe Sensation, a regional chain of name brand family shoe stores, is sponsoring Socks For Troops company wide now through Dec. 24. Each store will be collecting socks for active duty military or local veterans in or around the community. Shoe Sensation will have military approved socks in store and customers will be able to receive 20 percent off the socks donated. Customers will also be able to bring in new socks to be donated.
“Socks are something we take for granted as most of us have nice clean socks every day to put on. The holidays are quickly approaching and it’s important for us to think about the thousands of U.S. military men and women deployed overseas in harsh, war ravaged places, and most likely spending the holidays away from their family. I am honored to be part of a company that gives back to the community,” Said Kelli Gill, Area Director and second time participant of Socks for Troops.
You may visit the local Shoe Sensation, located in Danville Manor Shopping Center on Hustonville Road, for details on where the socks will be delivered.
