WILMINGTON, N.C. – UNC Wilmington’s student-athletes have contributed nearly 400 pairs of socks for distribution to the homeless through Comfort Socks, a locally-based organization that is providing warmth and protection for the less fortunate.

The Seahawks raised the money to purchase the socks by soliciting money and then purchased the socks. Representatives from the Student-Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) delivered the socks on Friday to Theresa Tese, founder and executive director of the organization.
