Socktober recap!

By: Anonymous

Having access to something as basic as a clean, dry pair of socks can help save lives during the winter months, especially when you’re homeless or in a shelter. And so it was with this idea in mind that we came to you with a request for new socks for men, women, and children. All throughout October and early November we had "Socktober Sticker Stops" at Walmarts throughout the region, where socks were donated by our generous WGTS family.

We want to say a big “thank you” for bringing socks to us as we have gone around the region. Our goal was exceeded with your donations – in all, we received over 21,000 socks!

We are so thankful for your outpouring of support. The socks have been distributed to the Central Union Mission of DC and the Salvation Army just in time for the cold winter months.
