CLEVELAND - Several local organizations are lending a hand to help the area's homeless.
On Wednesday, the Ohio Coalition for the Homeless received the biggest sock donation ever.
It was all thanks to the MetroHealth System's 'Spare a Pair' program.
"The folks with the Community West Foundation came to us and had been out on the streets with homeless people, and had found that socks, boots were the most critical need in the community for homeless individuals. It's something we don't get a lot of donations for," said Brian Davis with the Ohio Coalition for the Homeless.
More than 6,000 pairs of socks were collected.
That's enough socks for every homeless person in Cuyahoga County, with about 1,000 pairs to spare.
