ARES is Collecting NEW Socks in September

The month of September will forever be known as SOCKTember! We are back for the 3rd Annual The DYOJO SOCKTember NEW Sock-Raising Competition.

Our local team - The Best DANG Sock-Raising Team in Pierce County - needs YOUR HELP. Collectively we want to beat last year's total of 66,000 pairs of NEW socks raised and donated to local charities and community centers.
