PIQUA – Shoe Sensation, located in the Miami Valley Centre Mall, has kicked off a program to collect and donate both military approved socks for active-duty personnel stationed overseas, as well as casual socks for off-duty use and local veterans in need.
Through Christmas Eve, Shoe Sensation will offer a 20 percent discount on socks purchased for donation to the Socks for Troops program. While new unworn socks bought elsewhere may be donated, Shoe Sensation has secured a special selection of military-approved socks that meet the requirements for active duty which can be purchased to donate to our troops overseas.
Anyone who has served in the military or worked outdoors in difficult conditions understands the difference dry, clean socks can make. While the military does provide clothing including socks, extra socks are one of the top requests of U.S. personnel overseas.
Piqua Shoe Sensation has partnered locally with Dayton VA Medical Center to aid in getting the socks to local veterans in need.
