SETH SOCK DRIVE FOR HOSPITALIZED VETERANS
PLEASE DONATE NEW, WHITE, COTTON, CREW LENGTH SOCKS!  Every year since 1985, during the Labor Day Weekend, the Volunteers of Sharing and Caring Inc. host river boat cruises aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet.  The guests of honor are approximately 1,000 Pgh. Area hospitalized Veterans.  Many of these veterans are confined to wheel chairs, and this event provides them with a relaxing day filled with food, and wheel-chair dancing. During the event, each Vet receives a “ditty” bag filled with personal items.  One of these items…new socks.  This is where you come in!  I need your help to assure each veteran will receive at lease two pairs of socks.
