Socks for Troops program off to a great start...
As of Sunday, November 27, 2016, Shoe Sensation’s Sock for Troops program has collected 3,996 pairs of socks and 585 shoe laces for local veterans and active duty military overseas. The program is receiving tremendous community participation and Shoe Sensation thanks all who have donated so far on behalf of our troops and veterans.
Socks for Troops, designed to collect and donate both military approved socks for active duty personnel stationed overseas as well as casual socks for off duty use and local veterans in need, will continue in all 150 Shoe Sensation locations through Christmas Eve and Shoe Sensation is offering a 20% discount on socks purchased for donation to the Socks for Troops program. While new unworn socks purchased elsewhere may be donated, Shoe Sensation has secured a special selection of military approved socks that meet the requirements for active duty which can be purchased to donate to our active duty troops overseas.
Anyone who has served in the military or worked outdoors in difficult conditions understands the difference dry, clean socks can make. While the military does provide clothing including socks, extra socks are one of the top requests of U.S. personnel overseas.
Please visit your local Shoe Sensation to donate and for details on where the socks will be delivered. To find a Shoe Sensation near you, visit www.shoesensation.com and click on locations.
