Join us in making a difference in Long Beach, California. As the cooler months approach, we're launching a sock drive from November 1st to December 2nd, 2023. A recent study by D’Souza, O’Mahony, and Achoba (2022) highlights the pressing foot care challenges those experiencing homelessness face. Clean socks play a crucial role in maintaining foot health, reducing the risk of infections and complications such as immersion foot, frostbite, and "street feet." Despite their essential role in foot care, socks remain among the least donated items.
Your heartfelt contributions will directly assist St. Luke's Shower Program—a recipient of our shoe donations for years—and the Women’s Shelter of Long Beach. Clean socks are not just a basic need; they are a foundation for foot wellness and improved quality of life. Your donations make an immediate impact. Together, we can ensure that every individual in our community takes a step forward in good health. One pair of socks at a time.
