ALLKIIND Dedicated October To Provide Socks & Help The Local Homeless Community Prepare For Winter
Every night in America, nearly 600,000 people live on the streets? That’s a pretty big need for something so simple.
Everybody Needs Socks
If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re wearing socks. Or at least there’s a good chance you have a drawer full of socks somewhere. Socks are one of those things that are easy to take for granted – you just kind of always have them.
As we were researching our Give this week, though, we realized a lot of people don’t have them. Did you know socks are the least-donated item to homeless shelters? And every night in America, nearly 600,000 people live on the streets? That’s a pretty big need for something so simple.
Let’s Rock Socktober!
This October, some of our personal favorites, SoulPancake and Kid President, are encouraging people to fill that need and donate socks to homeless shelters all across the country. It’s Socktober! We thought that sounded like a great idea and an awesome way for Allkiind to help our local community prepare for the winter and holiday season.
Allkiind Give – Socktober
Last week, we took proceeds from our sales and donated a big basket of socks to Orange County Rescue Mission. OCRM serves the homeless by providing residential housing, medical and dental care, meals, job training, substance abuse treatment, mental health assessment, and many other incredible services. We’re happy to help these helpers!
As always, thanks for shopping Allkiind and allowing us to give! It’s what we’re here for. We’re looking forward to doing even more good and sharing more stories.
