From January 1 through March 1, 2019, you can donate new socks to the ROCK it SOCK it Drive. Socks are the most needed piece of clothing for individuals without permanent housing. And one of the least donated items to homeless shelters. The goal is to receive 2,000 pairs of socks, that will then be stuffed with needed travel-sized toiletries to make Sock Care Kits. The Kits will be assembled March 2, and delivered to Comitis Crisis Center for distribution.

Why are socks so very important?
Providing clean new socks helps those in need to get one step closer to healthcare.
-There is nothing worse than cold feet! Socks provide a layer of warmths, a need that is increased by smoking which constricts blood vessels and makes toes more susceptible to damage by cold. Severe frostbite leads to amputation.
-Sock decrease friction between the shoes and the foot, and help to cushion the bottom of the foot. There are consequences of constant friction—thickened skin, polyneuropathy, skin infections, blood poisoning and bone infections
