Many Central Albertans will have warm feet thanks to a successful Sockey Night.
United Way of Central Alberta collected over 1,700 pairs of socks at the Red Deer Rebels game at Enmax Centrium held on Oct. 22.
Last year 1,200 pairs of socks were distributed through the annual campaign.
United Way sold the socks at the Centrium that were then thrown onto the ice during second intermission. Many people also brought socks to the game to donate.
Proceeds from sock sales will go towards more than 40 community programs and socks were delivered to six agencies to give out to those in need.
