Each morning we put on a clean pair of socks with hardly a thought. But for our community’s homeless men and women these items are often a luxury.
By organizing a new sock drive at your office, school, place of worship or even with friends and family, you not only help our community's homeless with critically needed items that help keep them healthy and safe, but you also help maintain their dignity and comfort– a attributes to a successful move beyond homelessness.
To participate, all you need to do is donate at least one brand-new pair of men's or women's socks (wool or cotton tube socks work best). Operation Sock Drop is an easy and inexpensive way (for example, you can buy a 6-pack of cotton athletic socks at Target, Kohls and even CVS or Walgreens for just a few bucks) to have a big impact on the comfort, health and safety of the homeless men and women in our community.
Operation Sock Drop can be conducted at your work, school, place of worship or even at home. We can provide you with flyers you can post or email to notify co-workers, classmates, colleagues, friends or family. You just provide a place for participants to drop off their donations (most people just set up a box in a common area).
