When Gardner-Webb University students traveled to New York City last fall for a service trip, they took hundreds of pairs of clean new socks with them. The clothing items, collected during Family Weekend activities at Gardner-Webb, were gifts for some of the many homeless people who visited a city soup kitchen where the GWU group volunteered. In all, more than 2,300 pairs of socks were collected in last year’s donation drive, and many of them found the feet of people served by homeless ministries in local communities near Gardner-Webb.
