Socks for Veterans -- February 2017
In November 2016, Project MALE students and volunteers collected socks for veterans as its community service project. Project MALE partnered with the Tommie Robinson American Legion Post 802 (Angela Herndon, Commander) to donate those socks and other items to veterans at the VA Hospital on Monday, February 13, 2017 during the National Salute to Veterans Week. Over 600 gift bags (socks, bottled water, Kleenex, and mints) were given out to grateful veterans with lots of hugs, handshakes, smiles, and salutes. Clarice Tinsley of Fox 4 News recognized these donations of socks and other items to veterans during her Hometown Heroes segment. Click on the image below to view the video clip.
