Seven days and as many new pairs of socks that we can acquire — that’s the goal for Socktober 2014.
Last year we orchestrated our first ever clothes drive throughout the month of October, with the focus solely on acquiring new pairs of socks for three area homeless shelters. The inspiration came from Kid President and the result was beyond amazing. We collected more than 1,200 pieces of clothing, 600 which were new pairs of socks.
This year, due to the lack of sponsorship, we weren’t able to host such a large operation. But that won’t stop us from caring, oh no my friends.
Thus, for the next 7 days, we are officially proclaiming it Socktober once again in Kansas City. If you have it in your heart to go out and purchase a package of new socks for the homeless, please do so. We’ll arrange a pick-up by car, train or plane if need be and then deliver all the donations we can to Morning Glory Ministries. Four dollars, that’s all it’ll cost you to help keep someone warm this winter.
So, if you are willing to join us for our 2nd Annual Socktober Sock Drive, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a drop-off time. And spread the word that for the next week, it’s nothing but Royals baseball and socks for the homeless.
Kansas City, let’s do something amazing.
