Sometimes ... New socks can be more important than food ... for the homeless.
Two questions for you:
- What do you do with you old clothes?
- What do you do with your old socks?
The two answers we normally get:
- I usually donate my old clothes to a good cause.
- I usually trash my old socks because they are worn or have holes in them.
So ... if the homeless rely on your donations for the clothes they wear - where do they get socks??
A lot of them get new socks from us. (Actually new socks are probably the number one item asked for at shelters.)
FYI our website has lots of info about: the impact of new socks, dangers to homeless without socks, FAQs, etc. You can access them here.
Thank you for supporting our mission and helping make a positive impact on the lives of those experiencing homelessness.
