WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- This "Giving Tuesday," Mount Tabor High School students teamed up with HanesBrands to hand out clothing to nearly 100 homeless people at the Salvation Army's Winston-Salem emergency shelter.

The donated socks and shirts were distributed during the Salvation Army's community breakfast Tuesday morning as part of the company's annual Holiday Sock Drive.

Across the country, HanesBrands says 150,000 pairs of socks were donated to 40 Salvation Army's.

Mount Tabor High School in Winston-Salem, the winners of last year's Hanes Holiday Sock Drive, collected 1,114 pairs of socks in 2013 and will compete against other area high schools this month to raise even more clothing for people in need.

FOX8's Michael Spears spoke with HanesBrands and the Salvation Army on Giving Tuesday about the difference donations make especially during the cold winter months.
