9th Annual Spread the Warmth Sock Drive

 

It's hard to believe, but this will be the ninth year of the Annual Spread the Warmth Sock Drive! Since a sociology class during my junior year of high school, I have coordinated this drive around the holiday season to benefit the homeless and others in need. During this time, I collect primarily socks, as well as hats, gloves, scarves, coats, and other warm clothing items that are delivered to Hope Center in Waukesha, WI.

The Annual Spread the Warmth Sock Drive has grown tremendously in the last eight years, and I hope it will continue to do so for years to come. Your support has been extremely important in the past, and I would love for you to be involved this year as well! The 9th Annual Spread the Warmth Sock Drive will run from November 20th until December 18th.
