Thursday night the sorority Omega Phi Alpha and the fraternity Alpha Phi Omega put on a ’90s game night for the charity Hannah’s Socks where the admission to the night was a new pair of socks. Ten-year-old Hannah Turner started the charity on Thanksgiving in 2004 when she was only four years old. She and her family were volunteering at the Toledo Cherry Street Mission when she noticed a homeless man with torn shoes and no socks. She decided he could have her socks because he needed them more then she did. The next day she and her mother went back to the shelter and donated 100 pairs of new socks and thus Hannah’s socks was born. They now gather and donate socks to the needy all over the world, but they are more concentrated in Northwest Ohio where they have more than 13 dozen shelters to which they donate.
