WAYLAND, Mich.--While many people donate clothes and coats to local shelters, it turns out that socks are the least donated item.

That's why two local mothers are on a mission to change that.

They have collected 4,000 pairs of socks so far, and are teaming up with a coffee chain to get more.

On Thursday, March 28th, you can bring a donation for the Sock Project at the Biggby Coffee location in Wayland, located at 1114 West Superior Street.

If you don't have a donation, a dollar from each drink will go toward their mission. If you do have a donation, you'll get a dollar off of your coffee.

The mothers plan to donate the socks to Degage Ministries in Grand Rapids and another women's shelter in Allegan county, called Syliva's Place.
