Mayor Leslie Waters, City of Seminole -
Sock it to the Mayor Drive
Mayor Leslie Waters has initiated a “Sock it to the Mayor” tube sock drive for the benefit of 2 Seminole organizations – Operation Military Matters and the Interfaith Food Pantry.
Operation Military Matters, founded this year by two Seminole Elementary School 5th graders Graci Tubbs and Ava Spano, continually need tube socks for the shoe boxes they pack for our military men and women.
The Interfaith Food Pantry, with winter approaching, will distribute tube socks to clients in need of food and warm feet.
“The citizens, churches, schools, and civic organizations of Seminole are always generous with their giving. Hopefully we can collect 500 pairs of tube socks. Local retail stores sell for $10.00 or less a bag of 10 pairs. So 50 bags would be great,” smiled Mayor Leslie Waters, “So sock it to me…but only with socks!”
The “Sock it to the Mayor” request for tube socks will continue until year-end.
There are Drop-off boxes at Seminole City Hall for both organizations. City Hall is located next to the Post Office on 113th Street. Mayor Waters can be reached at 727-391-0204 x102, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
