Annual Sock Drive Underway

2018 Sock Drive

The winter has gotten off to an early start, so we are kicking off our Annual Sock Drive to help replenish the sock supply for the homeless.

For the next month or so, we will collect socks at the NWS Jackson office on behalf of Grace Place in Jackson.

The Grace Place ministry is always in need of men’s tube socks, and they greatly appreciate our donations. Cotton socks are fine, and wool socks are considered a luxury.

Thank you for your support, and have a great holiday season!

Operation East Coast

Our chapter is happy to be working with Meteorologist Christana Kay in support of “Operation East Coast,” an effort to provide aid to Hurricane Florence victims. We will be collecting donations at our next meeting on Monday 10/15, but please get in touch with Eric Carpenter if you would like to contribute and can’t attend. Given that Christana is in Starkville, she proposed that the chapter place an online order through the Walmart there for her to pick up, so cash may be the easiest way to help. The deadline for contributions will be October 23rd.
