NEJC Concorde Career College office collects more than 1,000 socks for charity. The staff of the Mission Concorde Career College Campus Support Center collected and donated 1,266 socks to a local non-profit that honors the memory of an 8-year-old Merriam boy who died of cancer earlier this year. Dominic Johnson’s family founded Dominic’s Sock it to Cancer as a way to provide kids fighting a variety of illnesses with comfortable foot coverings. (Johnson, who was honored by the Merriam Police Department prior to his passing, hated hospital socks). With Concorde’s donation, the group has now collected more than 3,000 pairs of socks. Its initial goal was 500.
