DANVILLE – With the local community already showing support, State Senator Paul Faraci is reminding residents that they can still participate in the Vermilion County warm socks drive until Friday, Dec. 15.

“I want to thank everyone in the community for helping make this warm socks drive successful,” said Faraci (D-Champaign). “For those who are still looking to donate, we are still in need of women’s and children’s socks.”

From now until Dec. 15, community members are encouraged to participate by donating new socks for men, women and children in Vermilion County. Faraci is highlighting the need for women’s and children’s socks as the majority of donations so far have been men’s socks. Residents can donate at these participating locations:

    • Monday to Friday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
