A Stockton teen is making sure seniors' feet stay warm and colorful this holiday season through her signature Silly Socks. Elle Gianelli, 17, now a junior in high school, was just a seventh grader when she created Socks 4 Seniors, sending Silly Socks to local nursing and assisted living facilities. Four years later, she's sent socks to 92 facilities across 48 states. "It is kind of funny to see their reactions in the facility because they'll be like, 'Do you have any black ones or any plain ones?' And then we're like, 'We're the exact opposite of black or grey or plain,'" Gianelli said. As she prepares her shipments of socks this holiday season, she hopes to show that someone cares. "Maybe they don't have family or maybe they live super far away and they're only getting like a postcard," she said. Gianelli is working to take the project to all 50 states and pick up even more PenPals along the way. She has a goal of raising $10,000 on her GoFundMe page.
