Thank you to Wigwam Mills, Inc. for their recent donation of socks!
Wigwam has a long and storied history in Sheboygan that you can read about here: https://www.wigwam.com/pages/our-story
Wigwam has supported SCCCF in a variety of ways over the years including donations and sponsorships for many SCCCF fundraising events.
Here’s a funny story. In 2007, Wigwam asked me to be a sock model! A photo shoot was scheduled in Milwaukee’s Third Ward that lasted several hours and hundreds of photos. In lieu of a modeling fee (seriously, paying me to be a model is and always has been laughable) I requested they make a donation to SCCCF... and they did so... quite generously!
I still have those socks that I modeled! I guess I just can’t wear them out (just like the many other Wigwam running and hiking socks that fill my sock drawer)! There’s a good chance that I may wear out long before any of those socks do!!! 😊
The donated Wigwam socks will be offered first to the ST&BF survivor-athletes who participated in the 2020 Active Survivors of Sheboygan Activity Log program! They will also be offered to anyone who participates in the Active Survivors of Sheboygan Activity Log during the month of January, 2021! Any remaining socks will be given away at various ST&BF activities throughout the year (while supplies last)!
