Published: 13th January 2011

One thousand pairs of socks have been collected as part of a "Sock It To Us" project run by charities in the US.

The Times Leader reports that the Foster Grandparent Program and Retired Senior Volunteer Program ran a scheme in Pennsylvania to collect new socks for people who are homeless and children in the area.

More than 1,000 socks were collected during the running of the scheme which was part of the "Make a Difference Day".

The socks were then distributed through the Domestic Violence Service Center, Ruth's Place, VISION, and the Luzerne County Head Start program.

Meanwhile, the Bellmore Patch reports that Christine Meaney's class at the Gunther Elementary School in New York collected more than 100 pairs of socks as part of the Z100 and soldiersocks.com Socks for Soldiers drives.

This was a part of the What about now? initiative at the school which encourages each class to help and support a global community.
