More than 1,000 pairs of socks donated by Sky Footwear

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - People at the Evansville Rescue Mission don’t have to worry about cold feet during the winter months.

Sky Footwear donated more than 1,800 pairs of socks this year. This large donation comes from their “buy a pair, give a pair” promotion.

These aren’t your basic socks either. The ones donated are thermal to provide extra warmth.

Employees say it’s important to give back, especially during the holiday season.

“Being able to come and do this and see the people that we’re affecting," Keaton Hendricks, Sky Footwear, explains. "The shelters that we’re helping out and the awsome organizations they have, that’s what re-energizes us and makes a huge difference.”

Those socks will be split up between the Rescue Mission and the Youth Care Center.
