Jessica Alexander and Paige Perry of Murrysville are collecting clothing items for donation to local families during the holiday season.

Every single pair of socks makes a difference.

It may not seem like much, but for a child in need, even the bare necessities can make for a welcome Christmas present.

Since 2012, Murrysville residents Jessica Alexander and Paige Perry have been working to provide things like underwear, socks and other clothing items to families in need. Franklin Regional School District officials provide a list of needed items, and community members can sign up to provide them through the website.

A dozen items are still in need of being supplied, primarily socks. To see a list of items, visit .

Purchased items can be dropped off in a collection box at 3925 Reed Blvd. in Murrysville, or shipped there. Donations are due by Dec. 10.

Pickup can also be arranged by calling Alexander at 724-493-5429 or Perry at 412-400-1965.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
