St. Luke Hospital Wound Care Center kicks off sock drive

Marion, KS. – The St. Luke Hospital Wound Care Center kicked off a Sock Drive on Monday, Sept. 12. Please consider donating new socks for both youth and adults.

They will be collecting them throughout the month of September and donating them to the Marion County Food Bank, which also donates clothing to the poor.

You may drop off your socks in the Main Lobby of the Hospital or at the Medical Clinic.

Socks are the most requested clothing items in the winter for those less fortunate. Providing new socks is an effective means for preventing foot-related health complications.

The Sock Drive coincides with Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Awareness month which is annually observed in September. PAD affects more than 8 million Americans over the age of 40. It can be associated with an increased risk of non-healing sores and wounds, limb loss and even death.

For any questions about the Sock Drive or PAD, please call St. Luke at 620-957-0253.
