United Way of Nevada County is holding a drive to collect warm socks and gloves for those in need in our community. Donate new socks and gloves and help everyone in our community stay warm this winter. Who are those in need? They are people challenged by illness or injury, or both; by traumas of childhood — or by all of these troubles. Too often they are children. So please donate new women’s, men’s and children’s socks and gloves. Everything collected will stay in our community.

Drop off locations include Walker’s Office Supplies, JC Penney, B&C True Value Home Center and the Grass Valley and Nevada City Chamber of Commerce locations.

Want to put out a collection box at your business? We have Sock Drive Kits, which include a box, and fliers. Let us know if you are interested in participating in this winter collection drive.

If you are interested in finding out more about the collection drive, call 274-8111 or email admin@uwnc.org.
