United Way of Goodhue, Wabasha, and Pierce Counties annual Socktober drive is underway for the entire month of October.
Socks are the most requested item by people experiencing homelessness, yet socks aren't often donated. You can help keep someone warm this fall and winter season by donating new socks.
Drop off donations in Red Wing at the Red Wing Public Library, Associated Bank, Thrivent Financial or at United Way office, located at 1755 Old West Main Street, Suite 101.
In Cannon Falls, you can drop off your donations at the Cannon Falls Area Chamber of Commerce or shop the online registry.
More information and the link to the online registry at Target and Amazon is available at https://www.uw-gwp.org/ and the United Way of Goodhue, Wabasha, and Pierce Counties Facebook page.
Last year, the Socktober drive collected 1,842 pairs of socks.
