Socks and more

Patrick Verrilli, left, Joe Murtha and Kyle Shifrin hold some of the socks, coats and gloves collected during a Veterans Day drive held by Wilton High School students. Each year students participate in the Socks for Soldiers campaign and this drive was to support Provisions For Patriots, a program for veterans in Indiana. The students collected winter clothing and hygiene items for the veterans and their families. Since December 2008, students have collected 11,978 pairs of sock. Their next drive will be to benefit Homes for the Brave in Bridgeport. — Contributed photo
