WINONA, Minn. (WXOW) – It’s a project resulting from the kindness of another.
Brandon Strabley once found himself in a difficult place.
After a bit of research and a little help from the Hiawatha Valley Mental Health Clinic in Winona and the Bombas Sock Company, Brandon is handing out hundreds of socks to those who need it most.
He recently received the boxes of socks and says they’re just in time for the coming winter weather.
“Knowing that it’s going to be coming in later August, I [was] like okay, these would be good for winter too,” said Brandon. “So I was really happy and really releived to see how this would work out and to give back to an organization thats helped me out the last few years.”
While Brandon says his project reminds him of the holiday season, he thinks generosity can always extend beyond.
“It kind of feels like the feeling you get when you buy a present for someone for Christmas. It’s nice to give back,” he said. “Christmas doesn’t have to be one day of the year, it can be whenever you want to help someone.”
The Bombas Socks Company donated all of the socks for Brandon to hand out.
