With Winter and the current Covid-19 health crisis, the homeless and low-income individuals fall into the most vulnerable category. Did you know that?
And, did you know that socks are the #1 clothing need of those experiencing homelessness? Plus, did you know that “the homeless” includes INCREASING numbers of families with children? Keeping feet clean and warm is vital to winter health care. Socks are essential. And you can help.
As an honored Sock Ambassador for the Sock It To ‘Em Sock Campaign, the team is doing everything it can to help individuals and families now and in the future. And it’s the reason I’m reaching out to you this week.
The Sock It To ‘Em Sock Campaign aims to put new socks on the feet of men, women, and children experiencing homelessness and/or are in need. As a 501(c)3, it has donated over 780,000 new pairs of socks across the United States. Over 85 schools have “sock drawers” for kids to choose from. The fabulous sock company Bombas recently donated 70,000 pairs for the Campaign to distribute!
The founders volunteer their time, as many others do. There are costs though—from warehousing and delivering socks nationally. At this point, the team has agreed that it’s time for paid help in their administration and distribution. The motto is: We’re making a social impact one pair of socks at a time!
Would you JOIN TODAY me in making a donation to invest in helping people in your community and across the country? The best way is through the Sock It to ‘Em website: https://sockittoemsockcampaign.org/
Love and a Gratitudes of Thank YOUs … every single dollar matters!
