Sandra Reichman reporting:
Hartford lawmakers spent the morning collecting donations for a veterans home in Rocky Hill.
It was all part of the 7th annual “State Capitol Secret Santa Collection,” which collects socks and other daily need items for hundreds of local veterans residing at the state facility.
“We are supporting the 500 plus veterans residing at the Rocky Hill facility and they continue to need basic personal items,” said Plainville State Rep. Betty Boukus.
This year, donations are also being accepted for ” soldiersocks.com ,” a website which ships tube socks to active service people in Iraq and Afganistan.
