Wacky Socks

KIDS Michigan sisters Reece and Olivia Ohmer had a goal to cheer up recovering pediatric patients, and the idea they came up with had legs — or at least feet.

The two, who attend Pinckney Community Schools and live in Pinckney, collected more than 700 pairs of socks from students during their "wacky sock drive" for C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.
