West Palm Beach, Fla. – Constitutional Tax Collector Anne M. Gannon is pleased to announce the results of the office’s holiday sock drive to benefit local not-for-profit, Living Hungry.
“We challenged our employees to donate 1,000 pairs of socks to go to homeless students in our local schools,” said Gannon. “Employees ‘knocked our socks off’ by doubling that goal collecting 2,087 pairs, enough to give each student a new pair of socks every day for a week.” Socks are one of the most-requested items; one fresh pair of clean and new socks adds dignity to an already challenging circumstance of being homeless while a full-time student.
Living Hungry is a local charity that partners with the school district to deliver supplies to homeless students in Palm Beach County. “I’m in awe of the big heart the Tax Collector staff has for helping others, said Maura Plante, Founder of the Delray Beach based not-for-profit.
“I’m so proud of the giving spirit of our employees, said Gannon. “I would like to thank them for always stepping up when the need in our community arises.”
