Sock donors set record

Friday, January 4, 2013
The 13th annual Southpark Mall sock collection for Upper Des Moines Opportunity more than tripled the average collection totals. A total of 703 pairs of socks were collected and turned over to Clay County UDMO office director Anita Jorgensen (left) by Southpark Mall's Sheli Cheevers (right). The average number -- between 150 and 200 pairs -- was greatly surpassed due largely to an effort by Dunhams Sports and Tradehome -- both of whom promoted the sale of socks in their retail stores.
