Socks For Seniors

Socks for Seniors is an annual community service project through which we organize collecting NEW socks to be distributed to elderly in local area nursing homes around the holidays.

The program begins with Make A Difference Day Saturday, Oct. 27. The Official Kick-off of the 2012 Socks For Seniors Campaign and runs thru Christmas.

We are looking for local area coordinators near Craig to help with collecting socks this year.

Host a Sock Drive. It all starts with 1 person, 1 box, 1 location. It’s easy…and all the socks stay in the local Craig area! If you have a nursing home, assisted living center or other senior community in mind for distribution – GREAT! If not, we will help connect you with a local senior community for distributing the socks at the end of the sock drive.

If you can decorate a box and find a location or locations for boxes – that’s all there is to it. Then together we can promote the sock drive.

NORTHWEST COLORADO — Maintenance crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT’s) northwest region of the state remain on snow shift after last night’s storm and are preparing for more snow forecasted tonight. Highways near Avon, Eagle. Edwards, Gypsum, and Vail are wet but not snowpacked. Areas like Craig, Granby, Kremmling, Leadville, Meeker, Steamboat Springs, and Winter Park have some snowpacked roads and crews continue to work to clear them. CDOT reminds motorists that roads may become icy throughout the region as temperatures drop into the night and bridges and overpasses will be the first to freeze.

Motorists are advised that bridges, overpasses and ramps will freeze first and should remember “Ice and Snow, Take It Slow.” Motorists can call 511 or visit for current road condition information across the state.
