ECS sports are on hiatus until winter sports begin. However, since this is the season to be thankful, Ellicottville Youth Sports and the Cub Scouts have started a SOCKS drive for our Homeless veterans and American homeless families.

S – Supply

O – Our

C – Citizens

K – Kindness &

S – Smiles

You can donate adult, Men’s and Women’s socks, as well as youth socks, new or slightly used.  We are also taking monetary donations to purchase new socks. We plan on making a donation of these socks before Christmas and are hoping to get at least 1000 pairs.

If you would like to donate, you can contact Todd Palmatier at 716-244-0964 or mail them to Ellicottville Little Eagles, P.O. Box 1311, Ellicottville, NY 14731 by December 15. We hope to make this an annual event of warmth to families and veterans in need.
