Osage, Iowa – Socks don’t have much use other than keeping our feet protected and warm, but early in October, they will help raise money.
Fox River will be hosting their annual sock drive Oct. 6-8 at the Mitchell County Fair Grounds. This event is open to the public. Mike Tyer, with Fox River, says a little more what this drive is.
These socks usually sell for $6-24 for a pair, but on this weekend, they are available for $1-3. The event will run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
All proceeds support a few non-profit organizations. Tyer says that he is proud to be part of the fabric of Osage and northeast Iowa. Fox River is the oldest performance sock brand.
