10th Anniversary Socktober Fest

We need your help!

Imagine stepping into an icy puddle on a blustery day.
What is the first thing you want to do?
Take off those cold, soggy socks!

The fact is, those experiencing homelessness do not have that option.

Our mission is to provide JOY to those experiencing homelessness by giving them new socks, and we need your support. Our sock supply is running low! Please help us reach our goal to collect 10,000 pairs of new socks in 10 days. Socks for men, women and children are always needed, however, at the present time we are very low on men’s socks.

We have three options available to help us reach our goal:

  1. Monetary donations can be made through our Socktober Fest Campaign Page by clicking here:
  2. Socks can be purchased online and shipped directly to The Joy of Sox via AmazonSmile Charities, click here;
  3. Socks can be purchased locally and brought to our socially distanced sock drop-off. Email Tracy McGuckin for sock drop-off details or any further questions.

To catch the essence and energy of our mission, please view our video.
Thank you so very much for your support!
