KSAT Community spotlight: Help Soldiers’ Angels collect 10,000 pairs of socks for service members, veterans

Sock drive runs thru April 30th

SAN ANTONIO – With your help earlier this month, local nonprofit Soldiers’ Angels were able to give out 4,000 Valentine’s Day cards to our service members and veterans.

Now the group is hoping to collect 10,000 pairs of socks in its Warm Feet for Warriors sock drive.

Did you know the most requested item from deployed service members and veterans in VA hospitals are socks?

Soldiers’ Angels is a national nonprofit that provides aid, comfort, and resources to the military, veterans and their families.

All colors of socks and sizes must be in their original packaging which the national nonprofit will distribute to VA Hospitals and include in its care packages to the deployed.

“Our goal for 2021 is to collect 10,000 pairs of socks for our deployed service members and veterans,” said Amy Palmer, president and CEO of Soldiers’ Angels. “As an Air Force veteran, I know firsthand how nice it feels to slip your feet into a brand new pair of socks. We know there are regulations for the type of socks our troops wear when in uniform, but they request socks to wear when out of uniform – so really, any kind of sock will do.”

The sock collection will run thru April 30, 2021. If you would like to purchase socks for veterans, click here for Soldiers’ Angels Amazon Wish List.
