“New socks are always in high demand by our troops who serve both at home and abroad,” said Corrado (R-40). “For those in the field, access to clean socks is a necessity to stay healthy. Our sock drive is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the sacrifices of our volunteer heroes and show they have support from back home in New Jersey.”
Corrado and Stanfield (R-8) are collecting sock donations at their district offices throughout the month of March. This is the second year they are hosting the drive together.
Corrado first collected “Socks for Soldiers” during her tenure as Passaic County Clerk, and the campaign has collected thousands of pairs of socks each year.
“New socks are one of the items most often requested by our military men and women serving around the world,” said Stanfield (R-8). “Military members don’t always have access to laundry facilities, and clean socks can be tough to come by. We want our soldiers to be healthy and effective, and this is a great way to help keep them on their toes. For a young man or woman serving far from home, access to new socks can be a difference-maker.”
Donations can be delivered to Senator Corrado’s office at 999 Riverview Dr., Suite 350 in Totowa or to Senator Stanfield’s office at Elmwood Business Park, Suite B-101 in Evesham.
The senators are also urging schools, businesses, and local governments support the effort by posting collection boxes with a “Socks for Soldiers” sign.
