Service project helpsto keep people warm
Union County residents are invited to be a part of a project which helps to keep people warm.
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, RSVP, is collecting new, warm socks for its Martin Luther King, Jr. “Make A Difference” service project again this year.
Throughout January, RSVP volunteers have been gathering new socks (for both male and female) to distribute to residents of local facilities within the southern seven counties.
Last year, 106 pairs of new socks were given to the residents of Jonesboro Health Care Center in Jonesboro who were very appreciative of the gifts.
Those who want to help are invited to take a pair or two, or perhaps a package, of new socks to the Shawnee Development Council Inc. outreach office in Anna. The office is located at 1000 N. Main St.
New socks are being gathered through Friday, Jan. 28.
For more information on how to help with the project, contact Union County RSVP representative Martha Ann Webb by phone at 833-5717 or the Shawnee Development Council outreach office at 833-7431.
