Lynne Adkins of CBS affiliate KYW 1060 Newsradio in Philadelphia, PAÂ ran a clip this morning entitled Local Man Wants To Keep Needy Feet Dry and Warm.
WAYNE, Pa. (CBS) -Â Tom Costello Jr. was volunteering at a homeless shelter when a podiatrist told him the needy men and women thereÂ suffered from a lot of foot-related problems because so few of themÂ had socks.
Costello says most people who donate clothes usually forget about feet:
â€œWhat do you do when your sweater wears out, well you give it to Goodwill or to the church. What about your socks? When theyâ€™re worn out, I threw them away, so youâ€™ll find out the homeless have a lot of opportunity for coats, jackets or sweaters, but they donâ€™t get any socks.â€
Heâ€™s started the www.thejoyofsox.org to raise money to buy or to receive donations of new footwear for the homeless.
