LWMA distributes socks from Bombas, senior day planned
Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance (LWMA) recently secured a donation of 3,500 pairs of high-quality socks and is distributing them in the community.
LWMA is hosting a “Socks for Seniors” day Tuesday, September 29. Free socks will be offered to all seniors in the Lake Whitney community at the Lake Whitney Senior Center, located at 502 North Colorado Street, from 9 a.m. to noon.
As seniors drive through the senior center, LWMA volunteers will meet and assist them. Free socks will be provided in the size needed in a safe manner.
Two hundred pairs of socks were provided to first responders on Thursday, August 27. After the September 29 senior giveaway, socks will be given to the Joint Committee for Christmas for distribution in December’s Angel Tree program.
LWMA received the socks from Bombas. The company gives away a pair of socks for every pair purchased. LWMA applied for the free socks to be given to those in need in the community, and Bombas accepted the application.
LWMA received 3,500 pairs of adult socks sized XS to XL. Each sock is great quality, black, and there is a choice of ankle or calf in each of the sizes.
With the Bombas donation, LWMA leadership decided to give socks to first responders, those who receive services from its Joint Committee for Christmas and seniors.
