2021 Sock Drive
MLBOR is conducting a fall Sock Drive to help support the local community. We are collecting New, Unworn Socks for Men, Woman & Children. Below is a list of Drop off locations and which organizations we will be supporting. You can drop off at any of the locations or at the board office.
The office is open Monday - Thursday from 9:00 - 4:00 and Friday from 9:00 - 3:00.
Socks are the #1 clothing item needed by the homeless!
