There are many people in the Philadelphia area and across the country who have collected socks, run sock drives or in general have helped with our mission of providing new socks for the homeless.
Conducting sock drives is a fun activity and a great way to both raise awareness of the plight of the homeless and the problems they have from not having new socks. Sock drives can be held in your school, church, workplace, favorite store…or anyplace.
