2022 - The 10th Annual Holiday Sock Drive
Thank you to all who donated and worked hard this holiday season to make our 10th annual Holiday Sock Drive a success! We received more donations than ever before, and we formed incredibly beneficial partnerships with other organizations in town.
With your support we have continued to make a difference in the lives of children, seniors, and adults with disabilities. In total we were able to serve 200 individuals throughout our programs in Ketchikan and on Prince of Wales Island. Donations truly brightened the days of those in our community. From cash contributions to donated clothing, hand-knitted hats and homemade cookies, each of these items brought joy to those in need. We are grateful for your partnership!
Ever wondered “what does Community Connections actually do?”
Here’s what we do – and why.
