The Washington County Dems will be doing a sock drive for the Holiday Hope event at West Bend High Schools again this season. Holiday Hope is a party put on at the high school for students who might need a little extra holiday cheer during this time of year. Students are nominated by their teachers to attend and are selected for a variety of reasons including economic need, personal illness, family death, and emotional trauma.
Our sock donations have been one of the highlights of the event for the last two years and students who have participated in the past have already been asking if there will be socks again this year. Sometimes students choose socks for themselves and sometimes they choose them for family members (there is a gift wrap station at the party where students can wrap presents for family members if they wish).
There will be a basket at the office where sock donations can be dropped off. The last day for donating is WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14th!!!
Thank you so much for your donations!
