Akram Boutros, CEO of MetroHealth Hospital wears colorful socks every day to work. The employees decided that in lieu of a birthday gift or a facebook message they would donate Socks to a collection that would be then given to the SocksPlus campaign. With the help of Dairy Mart, Alcoa employees, the MetroParks, and Geigers employees they collected 6,100 socks and delivered them in an ambulance to NEOCH this week.
We had Cosgrove Center, St. Malachi, Metanoia, Care Alliance present to receive the donations. All these socks will go to great use over the next few months. There were some really nice wool socks that the CEO purchased himself to give to homeless people in Cleveland. It was a nice event covered by Fox 8 and the Plain Dealer.
MetroHealth is going to do a collection for the fall to participate in the 2016-17 Socks Plus Campaign. Thanks for all the help from everyone who donated. It is a tremendous help to all of us.
