Sock Drive 2014-15 E-mail

We are happy to announce that our most recent sock drive, in memory of our dear Dawn Marie, was again a huge success. This year, with the help of MANY people, we collected and distributed 9,413 pairs of socks to those in need in our Valley.

As always, the "thank you" part of our story is essential, because without the help of our supporters, this venture would be much more difficult.

Mercedes and Ty Hilbrecht, from the Mercedes Benz Club of America Las Vegas Chapter, were able to provide over 700 hundred of pairs of socks for our cause. The Hilbrechts have been long time donors and we truly appreciate their support.

Mr. Mike Bauder and the students from Derfelt Elementary school knocked it out of the park again this year. This school has been supporting us from the start and Mr. Bauder involves the whole school when collecting. We are so pleased to have such a supportive bunch on our side!

Dr. Nelson and Mrs. Karen Lasiter, thank you! The Lasiters continue to collect socks in their dental practice year after year and I am so appreciative of the help Karen provides to me by even delivering the socks collected.

My team at Gap Town Square. Thank you for your generous donations every year. It is heart warming to know that you care enough about the cause to continue to support me and The Simms Foundation.

Douglas Simms - THANK YOU for letting me continue this sock drive that Dawn Marie started so many years ago. It is a labor of love and I am honored to be able to carry on the tradition.

So many people benefited from the socks this year. The organizations include: The Salvation Army, Poverello House, St. Therese Center, Three Square, Matthew's Closet, and Grace Ministries.

Here's to another stellar year!

Derfelt Elementary School and Mr. Mike Bauder support our sock drive with enthusiasm every year! Thank you!
