Socks and shoes given en masse to schoolchildren
Over 300 children have been helped by a national retail chain in America which has provided their school with new socks and shoes for every single one of them.

The Indy Star reported that Kroger, the supermarket based in Ohio's Cincinnati, was helping out those in need again after supporting schools in the region for 24 years, with the firm's central division president Bob Moeder and wife Marsha donating the socks to children from the area.

Commenting on the donation, Mr Moeder said that it was very proud of every student at the school and hopes the hosiery would be helpful to their health.

He continued: "These children inspire us. As we enter the winter season, giving new shoes and socks to these children is simply one more way we can show them how much we truly care about them."

Earlier in the month, Daniel Pimlott of the Financial Times highlighted the wonders socks were doing for Donald Trump, with the real estate mogul profiting from the product in tough times for the property market.
