Bates County Memorial Hospital Volunteers Pat Friederich, Alan Mundey and Char Gus hold armfuls of some of the donated socks for Operation Sock-It-To-Me, the Auxiliary’s annual project that helps provide new/in package socks for area school age children, K-12. The sock collection is about to wrap up, with donations open until 12/24. Want to join us? Leave sock donations in the sock box in the hospital’s front entryway. The doors are open from 6:30 am – 5:00 pm.
