People who visit the Lord’s Diner and other homeless outreach centers in Wichita for meals this Thanksgiving will get something extra: socks.
KMUW’s Deborah Shaar reports on a Wichita woman’s annual effort to help those in need.
Maggie Ballard calls her drive “Socktober.” For the past four years, she’s been collecting socks and then handing them out during the Thanksgiving holiday.
"I picked socks because you could buy the most quantity and make the most effort," Ballard says. "Not everybody can buy 100 coats for everybody."
