Sock It To Me

Send out a plea for socks for soldiers and what do you get?

Over 1,900 pairs.

Lauren Koster and Lauren Keating, two New Jersey attorneys and law clerks (for the Cumberland and Salem County Courthouses respectively), have far exceeded their “modest” goal of collecting 500 pairs of new tube socks. (I think 500 is a lot of socks. I speak from personal experience because I have at least 500 in my house, sans mates.) Jeannette Pace, a paralegal employed by Russell & Russell in Millville, offered the law office as a local collection center. They’re still accepting socks.

A quick Google search revealed several programs knitting or collecting socks for soldiers, but if you’d like to simply purchase new socks and have them sent directly to soldiers in Afghanistan, check out Fox Rivers Socks for Soldiers program. They carry specialized socks, including military boot socks, and have a wish list for soldiers. You buy the socks and Fox River pays the shipping.

I know I’ve had days when a clean pair of socks made all the difference in the world (and I have easy access to a washing machine).
