Local groups collecting holiday socks for senior citizens

Socks for seniors

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - The people over at Chalmers Realty Group want to give back to the elderly this holiday season. They are collecting donations for "Socks for Seniors."

They are making it their goal to get fun holiday socks to senior citizens.

Chalmers Haas, one of the organizers, was inspired after visiting his late mother in the nursing home. He saw so many senior citizens who were lonely, that he decided to give back.

"I remember when I used to visit my mom. There used to be residents who were just dying for people to talk to them or interact with them who haven't had a visitor in a long time, and again I think the nursing homes do a great job, but it's hard to stay connected if they don't have family in the area," says Haas.

The socks will be dropped off at area senior centers December 20.

If you'd like to donate, you can drop off socks at the Keller Williams office: 3525 Merlin Dr., Idaho Falls, Apple Athletic Club: 2030 Jennie Lee Dr., Idaho Falls, Salon 1920: 1920 Channing Way, Idaho Falls, and Imperial Cleaners: 1195 E 17th St, Idaho Falls.
