OGDENSBURG -- Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center Auxiliary is sponsoring the 6th Annual project Sept. 1-30.

According to a press release from the Auxiliary, going without socks or having to wear worn out socks leads to a multitude of foot conditions some of which are: athletes foot, calluses, persistent fungus, blisters, chafed skin, cracked skin, infections, foot pain and worst of all trench foot. Socks also absorb perspiration from the feet which helps to prevent embarrassing odor, the press release said.

Operation Sock-It-To-Me is collecting new socks to give to men, women and children in our community, providing them pride, warmth and personal hygiene.

There will be drop boxes located in the Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center Lobby and Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center Cornerstone Cafe.

Pick-ups can be scheduled.

To donate, call Ramona or Allyson at 315-393-1559 and they will make arrangements for a pick up if necessary.
