Legislative District Offices in Totowa and Somerville Host Sock Collections for Troops Serving Overseas

Through the month of March, Senators Kristin Corrado and Kip Bateman will be hosting a “Sock for Soldiers” drive to collect one of the most requested items by heroes serving around the world.

Donations of clean, unworn socks can be dropped off their district offices at 999 Riverview Dr. in Totowa and 36 E. Main St., in Somerville.

“Last year we collected more than 3,000 pairs of new socks for our troops. This year, I know we can gather up even more,” Senator Corrado said. “I am so grateful to all of the local schools and volunteers who have already stepped up to lend their support. Giving soldiers clean, unworn socks is the least we can do to help these heroes stay warm and comfortable. This is a great way to support those who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe.”

Corrado and Bateman urged schools, businesses, and local governments to post collection boxes with a “Socks for Soldiers” sign (print one here).

“By hosting collections in Passaic and Somerset County, we are giving people up and down the state a great opportunity to support our troops,” Senator Bateman added. “This is an easy, inexpensive way to help those who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. I hope everyone will join us in our fight to keep our warriors warm.”

Donations can be delivered to the 40th Legislative District Office or the 16th Legislative District Office, which will serve as primary collection locations. The collection drive will run through the end of March.
