stoked on socks delivers

Stoked On Socks ended 2009 with a bang!
Thanks to planet sox, we were able to deliver thousands of socks to homeless children and adolescents before Christmas. An additional thanks goes out to Kanani and her neighborhood, and the 7th Ward Relief Society.
Some other helpers found along the way...
Bryn,
who absolutely loved all the princess socks, but was able to part with them for the greater good
Luke,
who loved playing in the box
Me
a counter in competition
Mitch
the other counter in competition (who apparently won)
Off to deliver!
To say the least "white lightening" was full
The end result~
The Road Home Homeless Shelter (SLC)=1,500 pairs
The Road Home Homeless Shelter (Midvale branch)=246 pairs
Volunteers of America=768 pairs
Total=2, 514 new pairs of socks!!!

I saw your socks in action the other night at work. One of the Doctor's didn't believe that Patient could be homeless and have such clean socks! I automatically thought of you guys. What a great project
