After Kicks for Kids ended, Taylorville's Shoe Sensation began focusing on sock donations for their Socks for Troops charity. Charity Spencer, Area Director for Shoes Sensation said Socks for Troops is a way to give overseas personnel extra socks, but also give military vets socks too. Spencer said all of the socks that will go overseas from the Taylorville location have already been sent through Bridgette Crawford and Camp Courage, but Shoe Sensation is also partnering with local organizations to make sure local military veterans have help too.
Spencer said socks can come from anywhere, but must come from an unopened package, and must be unworn. She said while Shoe Sensation has military approved socks, socks can be of any variety because many will be used for casual time for active personnel and vets, not just normal black or white socks for professional use.
Spencer said donations for Socks For Troops can be made at any Shoe Sensation location, and they are also asking for shoe laces for boots as well.
