BENNINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The results are in for Bennington County’s “Socktober” campaign.

It’s an effort during the month of October to collect new socks and other cold-weather gear for homeless shelters.

Organizers say this year they collected 1,900 pairs of socks, 162 hats, 45 pairs of gloves and a number of other items like scarves, mittens and body warmers.

All the items went to the Bennington County Coalition for the Homeless and the Project Alliance Community Outreach Program.
