“GOT SOCKS!”

Help us “sock it to the wet and cold”
with New Socks for the Homeless!

 
The homeless spend a lot of time on their feet and don’t always have access to washing machines!  Wearing dirty and damp socks can lead to athlete’s foot and contribute to other health issues.  Clean, fresh socks provide comfort and contribute to good health.
 
We’re collecting New Socks, all sizes and styles are welcome.  White men’s athletic socks are the most needed.
 
Campaign starts November 1st and ends Monday, November 27th!  Do you think we can collect a GRAND of Socks for the Homeless?  Let’s keep track of the number of pairs collected and see how much caring we can share with the homeless through our non-profit partners Brother Benno’s, Bread of Life, OZ Teen Street Outreach, Fill-A-Belly, LaPasada, and Interfaith Services.
 
If you want to “Compound the Caring“, how about sharing this message and start your own sub-campaign?  Ask your friends, co-workers, neighbors, school class, church, bunko group, sorority or others to join you in collecting. Feel free to set up a collection box and use this flyer to advertise.  Teamwork always increases the output!  This is a favorite campaign for KidzCare and Teens Care!
