DGKN staff report
DALTON It’s “Socktober” again at Dalton Local Schools and donations of new socks and new underwear are being accepted to replenish the Clothes Closet during the month of October.
The clothes closet is low at this point for these items, especially for girls underwear and socks, according to Diane Merriman, family support specialist at Dalton Local. All sizes of new underwear and socks — kids through adult — are gladly accepted, she said. Any donations can be dropped off at the Dalton Elementary & Middle School office or sent into school with students.
The Clothes Closet is open by appointment by calling or emailing Merriman at 330-828-22405 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations of clothing also are being accepted and can be dropped off at DEMS or at Dalton High Schools in the appropriate containers in the lobbies.
“Our community has been very generous and it is much appreciated by the school and its families,” Merriman said.
