Raise socks and awareness this SOCKtober

The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and the pumpkins are carved. That could mean only one thing: it’s Socktober! Every October the Socktober movement takes hold aiming to raise both socks and awareness to the cause of socks for the homeless. Socks are the most needed but least donated item in homeless shelters. The need is great, hence, Socktober!

Every night In the United States roughly 600,000 men, women and children experience homelessness. Socktober reminds us that the donation of a new pair of socks makes a real difference in the plight of a homeless person. Having a clean, dry pair of socks is a true comfort and is a gift that shows real empathy for their struggle.

So, if you haven’t already, why not act today to contribute to the cause. Many organizations, schools and individuals hold sock drives to which you could contribute. YouGiveGoods offers a way to contribute without ever leaving your home. Click here to purchase socks to be donated to The Inn, serving the hungry and homeless in Long Island, New York. You can make an exponential impact when you run your own YouGiveGoods sock drive benefiting your nearest homeless shelter or charity. There no fees to run your event; it’s a simple opportunity to do some good in your community. Learn more about how YouGiveGoods works or contact us to get started today.

We can all be of service by raising awareness to the cause. Social media has made it so easy to spread the word. Letting others know how you have chosen to support Socktober this year may ignite the spark in them to reach out to help as well.

Ring in the start of the holiday season with a donation that shows you care. Even one pair of socks will bring comfort and relief to a neighbor in need.
