Shoe store collects socks for troops

Staff report

SIDNEY — Shoe Sensation, 2350 Michigan St., is collecting Socks For Troops through Dec. 24.

The store will collect socks for active-duty military or local veterans in or around the community. Shoe Sensation will have military-approved socks in the store for purchase, and customers can get a 20 percent discount off the socks if they are purchased for donation. Customers will also be able to bring in new socks to be donated.

“Socks are something we take for granted as most of us have nice clean socks every day to put on. The holidays are quickly approaching and it’s important for us to think about the thousands of U.S. military men and women deployed overseas in harsh, war-ravaged places, and most likely spending the holidays away from their family. I am honored to be part of a company that gives back to the community,” said Angela Smith, area director and second-time participant in Socks for Troops.
