This year’s Holiday Sock Drive saw tremendous success. Drive organizer Kendra Ollinger says this year’s drive surpassed last year’s. Ollinger was unsure what to expect given the issues caused by the pandemic but said, the drive collected nearly 3,000 pairs of socks. Last year, in its first year the drive raised 2,000. Many area businesses served as drop off locations during the drive. The drive was able to provide socks for underprivileged kids and adults in Webster, Calhoun, and Humboldt Counties. The socks were distributed in schools and at shelters, as well as long terms care facilities and the VA clinic.
