“From the 2,500 socks that were stolen, Sacramento stepped up. We have just been receiving socks, and now, the store here is raising socks and we’re going to meet our goal so we’re we’ve extended our goal,” said Tina Reynolds, who organized the drive.

Famous Footwear stores will continue taking donations until Christmas Eve.
