Socks for the Sole Sock Drive succeeds

To the editor:

Community Health Center of Fort Dodge would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the wonderful businesses and individuals who participated in our fifth annual Socks for the Sole Sock Drive.

We collected more than 1,200 pairs of socks. It was a great way for people to give a fresh new pair of socks to the children in our community and the self-esteem to achieve their dreams.

The drive concluded at the National Night Out event on Aug. 8 and we were able to give all the children who attended three pairs of socks.

All of the remaining socks will be donated to the schools in the community. The children who received the socks will no doubt remember the generosity of the people in our community long after the first day of school.

Thanks again to everyone that donated and made our event a huge success.
