Wattsson & Wattsson Jewelers in Marquette has collected some big donations for this year's Rock the Socks campaign.

Now in its 7th year, Rock the Socks was started by students at the Marquette Alternative High School when they saw that socks were the most needed but least donated item.

During Giving Tuesday this week, the owners decided to match donations of socks resulting in some big numbers.

"We got 175 pairs of socks on Tuesday which is a lot, and then last night, about an hour before we were going to close we had a wonderful gentleman call and ask if we were still taking donations, we said 'of course,' and he said he had about 400 pair, so he dropped off about 400 pairs of socks which about halfway filled up our bin which is incredible," said Wattsson & Wattsson Sales Manager, Lacee J. Hartzell.

Rock the socks goes until December 13. The full list of drop-off locations is below.
