Students giving early holiday gift to nursing home residents

Seventh graders Emily Marino and Emily LaRouche are a big part of why a box inside St. Columba School in Bloomsburg is filled to the brim with pairs of comfy socks.

It’s part of a community service project they created called “Socks for Soles.”

The school and parish are collecting socks throughout November to donate to residents at several nursing homes in our area.
