Future Leaders in Construction Coordinate Socks for Soldiers

Jennifer Landon with Santa

This winter the 2022-2023 class of Future Leaders in Construction collected 1,000 pairs of socks to donate to local organizations that support veterans. The initiative, named "Socks for Soldiers," was born out of an activity in class. "Students came up with the idea during a class activity. A student suggested the concept, and everyone agreed it sounded like a great opportunity to give back to their local community," said Jennifer Landon, vice president of education and workforce development. 

Students worked to collect the socks from their employers, and Landon delivered them to local organizations that work with veterans, including the VA Hospital in Laconia and Easters Seals Veteran’s Count in Manchester.

Future Leaders in Construction is a 12-month program designed for anyone who wants to make a positive impact on work and in life. Whether in the field or in the office, the shared experiences among participants from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences is one of the features that makes this program unique and impactful.
