One summer camp wants their kids to know, you can never be too young to practice safety first. Kindergarten aged children at New Hanover County Pre-K Center will be learning all aspects of safety.

It’s a free, weeklong camp covering topics like bike safety, fire safety and even caring for a pet.

“You can’t start to young and in this day and age you can never be to safe. Alcohol is starting as early as elementary school so we want to get the information out there,” said teacher Tina Damico Poole.

Teachers hope children will walk away a little more prepared even at the age of five.

The Greater Wilmington Chamber of Commerce hosted an expo for local businesses to promote their products and services to other businesses in the region.

Incentives like games, sweets, and attractive decorations helped draw people to the different booths.

Many agreed this expo was essential in this economy.

“The expo lets other business owners in Wilmington, know about us. We’ve got a network and work together, so I think it’s very important that we all do that,” said Pat Walters of Main Stay and Sleep Inn.

“We’re here to make business contacts, for our local business but also to kind of get a barometer on what’s going on in the community, how these local businesses are doing, and we’re getting real positive reports, everybody seems to be real busy, and that’s good news,” added Mark Rhodes of Copiers Plus.

About 30 companies set up shop at the Schwartz Center in downtown Wilmington today to market their wares and services.

A local woman’s effort has supplied homeless people across the country with nearly 4,200 pairs of socks.

Theresa Tese founded Comfort Socks, a charity that collects and delivers socks to the homeless.

She made a delivery Monday to Early Bread Ministry at the Church of Saint Peter the Fisherman in Wilmington.

Comfort Socks has supplied socks to people as far away as New Mexico, New York City, and Florida.

Tese says socks are one of the items homeless people say they need most. “This is something I know will help them, and if I just concentrate on one thing, just do the socks, then someone else does something else, and pretty much it’ll all get done.”

You can donate socks, money, or your time to Comfort Socks by visiting their web site.
