Youth Missionary Ministry holding ‘Socks for the Soles’ drive

ELIZABETHTOWN – The Youth Missionary Ministry of Baldwin Branch Missionary Baptist Church is collecting white athletic socks to distribute to the local nursing homes.

The goal is to have 200 pairs of socks.

Sometimes it’s the small things that are the greatest gifts. The youth believe that giving a pair of socks to keep the nursing home residents’ soles warm and comfortable can bring the love of Jesus to their soul.

Collection dates will be held now through March 11 at the following locations:

— WBLA Radio Station 1440 AM, located at 512 Peanut Road in Elizabethtown; Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to noon.

— Baldwin Branch Missionary Baptist Church, located at 4047 N.C. 242 South in Elizabethtown; Mondays through Fridays, and Sundays 9 to noon, and Wednesdays 7 to 8 p.m.
