This project got underway in 2015 when it was recognized that members of
our community needed support to provide socks for the
homeless. In 2015, several hundred pairs of socks were
donated. In 2016, a larger group moved this project
forward to raise 5,000 pairs of socks for the homeless:
men, women and children. Community support was
outstanding and we raised 12,000 pairs of socks.
The 2017 goal for Socks for the Homeless is 20,000 pairs. The 2017
campaign will operate from November 1 until December 8,
2017. Outreach has already begun to identify more
shelters and other not for profit organizations who
support children, men and women who are in need. These
are organizations in addition to those supported in 2016
who continue to require our help. Efforts are also
underway to broaden our donor base in our community to
better enable us to meet the target of 20,000 pairs.
