Sock Drive for the Homeless

This month, we are hosting a Sock Drive for the Homeless. We are always talking about how important it is to have dry and comfortable feet; they go a long way to helping you feel warm. With our cold and wet Winters, we want to get great socks out to homeless teens, women, and men in Seattle.

Help us reach our goal of collecting 350 pairs (250 pairs first goal reached!)of new and gently used socks! We have challenged ourselves and our vendors to help us match those socks, to see if we can get to 500 pairs!

Socks will be distributed to YouthCare, Noel House, and Tent City 3. (Reuters photo article about America's tent cities, that features Seattle's Tent City 3.)
