Socks for Seniors
A non-profit community service project to help senior citizens keep their feet warm this winter.
Last year, Socks For Seniors Saco collected 449 new pairs of socks, exceeding what police department staff thought they would be able to collect. The socks collected are distributed to many local organizations including: Maine Veterans’ Home in Scarborough, Evergreen Manor, Lord Pepperell Apartments, the Paul Hazelton House and the Huot Home for homeless veterans.
Help us bring holiday cheer along with a pair of new socks to warm the hearts and cover the cold feet of our elderly seniors. Donations can be dropped off in the lobby of Saco Police Department, Saco City Hall or Saco Parks and Recreation Department. Socks will be collected now thru December 20 and will be delivered in time for Christmas.
