FOOTPRINTS TO RECOVERY KICKS OFF 3rd ANNUAL  NATIONWIDE “SOCKS OF LOVE” CAMPAIGN 10,000 PAIR GOAL IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Treatment center alumni disperse across U.S. to give back 

Socks. Simple, right? Yet most of us take them for granted. But did you know that each and every year, they are the least donated item to homeless shelters, yet they are vital to the community. Socks keep our feet warm, dry and free from disease. While most of us donate our gently used clothes, socks are overlooked. Why? Oftentimes, charities cannot accept used socks for sanitary reasons and buying new socks doesn’t enter our mind. As the chillier air sets in, the need is greater than ever.

That’s why this year, Footprints to Recovery is kicking off its 3rd Annual Socks of Love Campaign in hopes of collecting 10,000 pairs of socks. The socks will be accepted both at donation centers as well as online. Socks will then be dispersed by our alumni across homeless communities throughout the U.S.

“It is the little things in life that we take for granted each day, such as a clean pair of socks to put on in the morning,” said Mike Sinnett, Vice President of Catholic Charities. “However, if you are experiencing homelessness, socks are not taken for granted but a valued resource, especially in the winter. A new, clean pair of socks not only warms your feet from the cold, but adds an element of dignity to start out the day. Everyone likes new things, but a new pair of socks for those experiencing homelessness may be the best reason to smile that day! Sock donations are true acts of kindness at the Samaritan House, and we appreciate the generosity of our donors.”
