December 7th, 2017 6:00 am

The Newport Township American Legion Auxiliary Unit 539 recently completed a sock drive for the Veterans of Valor Clinic, a transitional housing facility in Monroe County. Collection boxes were placed in the vestibules of Holy Spirit Parish churches in Newport and Fairmont township during October and November. Thanks to the generosity of the Rev. Lou Kaminski and parishioners, three 50-gallon bags of socks will be delivered to the Valor Clinic in December. Auxiliary unit president Lorrie Materewicz is shown with the donations.
