Sock Drive For Camp Fire Victims A Success

Victims of the Camp Fire were able to get a pair of warm socks for Christmas, thanks to a Nevada County resident. 92 year old Cora Hughes made it a personal mission to collect as many new pairs of socks from area residents as possible the two weeks prior to Christmas. Working with local businesses, collection boxes were placed at SPD Market and B&C Hardware and a local church.

The socks were delivered the Friday before Christmas. Hughes says residents were generous, especially one person who used a holiday party as an opportunity to collect socks.
