Kenergy is asking its members and employees to bring in new pairs of socks for the needy. We anticipate a great demand for children size socks to fit infants through high school-aged children. Warm socks are appreciated as many children walk to school each day or wait in the cold for school buses. Socks for men would be great too as many work outdoors. Not only will new socks make a disadvantaged child/adult feel comfy and warm in the cold, but will give dignity and respect that will warm them all over.
Rummaging through a drawer full of socks is something we take for granted, but some don’t have that luxury. Something as simple as a new pair of socks will bring smiles to those that have none.
Why socks? Socks are the most needed but least donated article of clothing.
Collection Dates –October 1 through October 31
Members and employees can bring donation(s) to any Kenergy office during these dates. However, the main day – of concentrated effort to collect socks – will be at our Member Appreciation Day, Thursday, October 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at all Kenergy office locations – Henderson, Owensboro, Marion, Hanson, Hartford and Hawesville. Donations of new socks are appreciated every day; but on this day, we have over a thousand members coming by our offices. It is our hope that – on this day especially – members and employees will bring new socks to share the warmth for the upcoming winter season.
Distribution – Working mainly through county central school offices in Henderson, Daviess, Hopkins, Hancock, Ohio and Crittenden counties, socks will be distributed to Family Resource Centers at schools throughout those counties. Whichever Kenergy office you donate your socks in is the county that will receive your donation.
Collection Locations — New socks – size infant through adult – may be donated at any Kenergy office.
