Paramus celebrates centennial by breaking world record on sock donations
Paramus celebrated its centennial milestone Monday by breaking the world record for the most pairs of socks donated in one day.
The record had been 37,000 pairs of socks. Students, business owners and town residents donated almost 39,000 pairs of socks.
"We picked socks because we figured socks could be used everywhere and socks are the No. 1 thing that shelters look for,” says Rosa Rizzolo, co-chair of the Paramus Centennial Committee.
The donations will be going to homeless shelters across the tri-state.
The next step is to submit proof of the donations to Guinness World Records.
