Catholic Charities Sock Drive assists nearly 200 school-age kids


With the local community’s generous donations of socks and undergarments, Catholic Charities was able to assist nearly 200 school-age kids in need throughout Allegany and Cattaraugus counties get ready for back to school. Donations of new, unopened packages of socks and underwear were collected over the summer months at various churches and retail stores within the two counties.
