627 pairs of socks donated for homeless veterans

NGL answers American Red Cross's request for support for socks to distribute at an event that will provide homeless veterans an opportunity to connect with resources in the community.

Madison, Wis. – When National Guardian Life Insurance Company (NGL) employees learned that the American Red Cross needed socks for homeless veterans they jumped into action to fulfill the request. After only four days, NGL employees donated a total of 627 pairs of new socks for the American Red Cross to distribute at Homeless Veterans Stand Down, an event that will provide homeless veterans an opportunity to connect with resources in the community to hopefully begin a transition from homelessness.

The American Red Cross was hoping to receive 200 pairs of socks but NGL employees were incredibly generous and exceeded their expectations. “The sock drive for homeless veterans really hit home for me. My son is currently serving in the military so I donated because I would hope that if my son needed basic clothing items someone would help him,” shared Becky Anderson NGL Marketing.

 “The outpouring of support from employees was overwhelming. We had a short time to collect socks but NGL employees made it happen. It was inspiring to see all of the socks and know that they are going to homeless veterans in our community,” said Elizabeth Kirchstein NGL Corporate Giving Administrator.
