SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Did you know that the most requested item from deployed service members and veterans in VA hospitals is socks?! Soldiers' Angels wants to help keep our troops' and veterans' toes feeling toasty, and is once again launching its annual "Warm Feet for Warriors" sock drive. All colors and sizes of new socks in their original packaging are acceptable which the national non-profit will distribute to VA Hospitals and include in its care packages to the deployed.
"Our goal for 2021 is to collect 10,000 pairs of socks for our deployed service members and veterans," said President and CEO Amy Palmer, "and as an Air Force Veteran, I know firsthand how nice it feels to slip your feet into a brand new pair of socks. We know there are regulations for the type of socks our troops wear when in uniform, but they request socks to wear when out of uniform – so really, any kind of sock will do!"
The sock collection will run from February 1st through April 30th, 2021 and, in past years, Palmer said the socks have been received from near and far - from businesses, civic organizations, families, individuals, schools.
"Each year we are overwhelmed by the number of socks that arrive at our headquarters in San Antonio, far exceeding our goals and really showing America's desire to support the military and veteran community in whatever way they can."
