ONTARIO, OH - The Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging, as well as We ACT and The Cookies and Milk Project, are partnering up along with various community organizations for the third annual Socks for Seniors drive.

The purpose of Socks for Seniors is to collect socks for nursing home residents in Richland County.

Current collection sites include The Area Agency on Aging, the City of Ontario Administration Building (Mayor's Office), Richland Source, the Mansfield YMCA, and Richland County Children Services. 

WMFD will also be collecting socks for the drive. They can be dropped off at our office during normal business hours Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The last day to drop off socks at any of these locations is January 5th. 

Chief of Marketing and Development at the Area Agency on Aging, Teresa Cook, says their goal this year is to collect 2,000 pairs of socks. Last year the final count was over 1,600 pairs.
