Walk with Me, a project from Delta Kappa Gamma Upsilon’s society of women educators, distributed thousands of pairs of socks throughout Plaquemines Parish this month. Plaquemines Parish School Board Human Resources Director Monica Wertz received 30 cases (approximately 5,000 pairs) of socks as a donation from an anonymous out-of-state hosiery manufacturer. Walk with Me distributed the socks at locations like Riverbend Nursing and Rehabilitation Home in Belle Chasse and Second Harvest Food Bank at Phoenix High School (pictured). Patrons of Second Harvest were allowed to choose socks for their families free of charge during a Nov. 16 giveaway at PHS. Pictured from left are Wertz, Jeannine Harvey, Lorita Harvey and PHS Principal Kristie Williams. A release from Walk with Me refers to socks as “the universal need of the homeless, needy and forgotten.”
