JFCS of the Suncoast Collecting Socks for Homeless Veterans and At-Risk Youth

The Giving Coast

No one should have to go without a clean, dry pair of sockseach day but homeless people usually don’t have a choice. JFCS of the Suncoast is kicking off Sock It To Us, a donation drive seeking socks for struggling veterans, as well as other homeless people and at-risk youth. The collection period runs Sept. 19 through Oct. 14. The socks will be distributed in November in honor of Veterans Day and will go to JFCS’ Veterans Services clients, Family Services clients, and others in need. Homeless people often spend their days on the move and usually are not able to wash their socks. Unlike other articles of clothing that can be worn many days in a row, socks quickly become dirty and tattered, which can lead to discomfort, health concerns and shame. JFCS is collecting thick, comfortable socks for daily wear. White is the number one choice among the homeless community. Dress socks are also needed to help employment-seekers dress professionally and feel confident during job interviews.
