Special to the Times


BLYTHE, Calif. - Maribel Roggenstein-Gutierrez organized a sock drive on Facebook for the Harmony Soup Kitchen. The idea of the drive was to gather enough pairs of socks for the citizens who eat at the Harmony Soup Kitchen and give them as a Valentine's Day gift. Roggenstein-Gutierrez posted Facebook statuses leading up to Valentine's Day asking for donations of socks and canned food. Many local residents participated by buying socks and donating canned food items to the cause. Roggenstein-Gutierrez went above her goal of 100 socks by collecting 117 pairs of socks. Each pair of socks given away was included in a little Valentine's bag along with donated canned food.
