Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin kicked off a project that gives warm socks made in his state to children in need.
On Monday afternoon, Shumlin launched the 6th annual "Blue Socks for Kids" project. The wool socks, made by Cabot Hosiery Mills of Northfield, were distributed by community action agencies and homeless shelters.
More than 150,000 pairs of socks have been distributed since the inception of the project.
