So why SOCKTOBER? Because every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets and need simple things, like socks, to help get them through the night. Plus, the number one needed clothing item for those in need is new socks, but people very rarely ever donate new socks to the residenceless!
All Souls can continue to help with the church’s THIRD annual Socktober sock drive. In the last 2 years we have collected dozens of pairs of new socks that were distributed to the residenceless. The hunger outreach team will distribute them to the people they serve as well as sharing with other programs that serve people in need.
Let’s up our game in 2020 when needs are greater. Order socks from your favorite online retailer or pick some up at a local business. Drop the socks off up at the church in the trunk that will be placed in the lobby just opposite the communication center. Let’s fill the trunk to overflowing with new warm socks!
