Our first ever Community Sock Drive during the month of January was a HUGE Success! The community donated nearly 200 pairs of New "WARM" socks that we, in partnership with OlyCAP were able to distribute to all those in need in Port Townsend and East Jefferson County. The socks were collected at Henery's Hardware, Ground to Perfection, and the PT Leader office, all in Port Townsend. OlyCAP, having a connection in the community to all those in need, homeless and less fortunate it was a natural conclusion to partner with them in our effort to distribute the warm socks. In addition some of the socks also went to some of our Police Officers and Deputy Sheriffs so they might be able to help out a few in need that they encounter
 
We look forward to doing this again next year, it gives those that can an opportunity to support those who are in need in a positive way. We not only received socks, but we also received some generous cash donations that allowed us to purchase even more socks. THANK YOU!
