Posted December 19, 2013 at 8:41 am

The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Beta Epsilon Omega Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) recently started a donation project for two local area veterans’ facilities: Tomorrow’s Hope and The Hollidaysburg Veterans Home. This project, known as Socks For Veterans, began as part of PTK’s Honors In Action program, with the theme of “Veterans’ and Their Families.” The Socks For Veterans project is in collaboration with District 26 VFW and the Ladies’ Auxiliary, focusing on the collection of socks for area veterans.

Socks For Veterans began collecting on December 2nd and will continue to collect throughout the month of December. The goal of the project is to collect over 400 pairs of socks for veterans. Recently, members of the College’s PTK Officers gathered to distribute the socks collected thus far.
