AUXILIARY’s Operation Sock-It-To-Me Campaign Kicks off


Bates County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary volunteers have kicked off their 2021 Operation Sock-It-To-Me campaign, an annual project that seeks to help area school children receive new, warm socks for the cold winter weather.  

If you would like to donate, please purchase new socks still in the package. Collection boxes for the public are located in the hospital’s entryway. Donations may be dropped off on weekdays between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm until December 24, 2021. Socks will be delivered to area schools and distributed by the schools to students in need in grades K-12.

The Auxiliary thanks our community in advance for your help in making Operation Sock-It-To-Me a success.
