The Washington County Dems are doing a sock drive as part of a holiday event for West Bend High School students in need of “cheer.”
Jen Mesko, a special education teacher at West Bend High School, organizes the event in her “spare time” because she sees such a need amongst her students. She reaches out to her peers to ask them to nominate students they think might benefit from such an event and to ask for donations. She provides food and gifts for the students in attendance as well as an atmosphere of hope, promise and cheer.
This year the Washington County Dems have volunteered to do a sock drive for the students. Please donate NEW socks for this important event. You can either drop them off at the office or contact Tanya Lohr (414-467-8469) to have them picked up. The cut off for donations is Tuesday, December 2nd.
