COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 26, 2022 (Newswire.com) –
Over the past few weeks, Pathways Financial Credit Union has organized and donated a drive for various items that will be sent to U.S. soldiers serving overseas through the organization Socks for Soldiers, a Columbus-based nonprofit organization and founded by Kim Opperman. This organization not only collects and delivers personal care items for soldiers, but also has teams that knit pairs of socks to send with their personal care boxes as well.
A generous donation of personal care items for the soldier’s sock drive was presented to Angela Jackson, assistant branch manager of Pathways Regina Johnson, president of Touching Moments, a nonprofit serving the underprivileged of Montgomery County. In addition to Touching Moments’ substantial donation, Pathways Financial Credit Union also donated an additional $4,800 in personal care items to the Socks for Soldiers campaign.
Alicia Hershberger, Director of Sales and Service for Pathways, said, “All members of the Pathways family were thrilled to be able to donate to Socks for Soldiers. I appreciate all the hard work our team has put in to make this donation campaign a success for our deployed soldiers.
