For the second consecutive year, staff at SCI Waymart donated new, unused socks to toward the Winter Warrior Warmup, a sock donation drive to benefit veterans in northeast Pennsylvania. The effort, organized by the Back Mountain nonprofit group Your Dash 365, collected more than 4,000 pair of socks in 2022 for donation to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Plains Township and the Gino Merli Veterans Center in Scranton, including 100 pair donated from the team at SCI Waymart.

In 2023, Waymart staff bested last year’s total – collecting 148 pair of socks for veterans in need.
