Last year around the holiday season while at church, Kendra Ollinger was inspired to start a sock drive in the local area. After a successful initial campaign in 2019, she has decided to have the drive again this year. The drive got underway on Nov. 23rd and will run until Dec. 15th. The drive is calling for new socks only and the socks collected will be delivered to local schools and shelters. There are many locations in the area serving as drop off locations.
In Fort Dodge those locations include Amigos, Danny’s Hair Fashions, Fort Dodge Rec. Center, JRG Supply and Kemna Quick Lube. In Manson, Fringe Salon and Highway 7 Market. Kelso General Merchandise in Dayton and Addison James in Gowrie also are serving as drop off locations. There is an option for those who want to purchase socks online and have them shipped, also an option exists to donate cash and have the shopping done for you. For more information contact Kendra Ollinger at 515-570-0915.
