Over the last few weeks, Pathways Financial Credit Union organized and donated to a collection drive for various items that will be sent to U.S. soldiers serving overseas via the Socks for Soldiers organization, a Columbus-based, nonprofit organization founded by Kim Opperman.

In addition to the substantial donation from Touching Moments, Pathways Financial Credit Union also donated an additional $4,800 in personal care items to the Socks for Soldiers drive.
