This week we recognize Erin Anton and her daughter Emery.
They were nominated by Sharon Gilroy-Dreher, who organizes an annual sock collection for the less fortunate called “Toasty Toes.”
Sharon says the pair asked those attending Emery’s 17th birthday party to bring socks instead of gifts, which were given to Sharon for distribution to One Roof Supportive Housing. “They collected socks instead of gifts and this young girl had 109 pair of socks from her friends.”
