What a Feat!

socks

Wow! It’s been pretty cold lately. And rainy. It sure is nice to be able to put on my fuzzy slippers, and snuggle up under my cozy blanket. Sadly, there are many people in our community who don’t have that luxury. They have no home, no slippers, no warm socks or even shoes sometimes. Fortunately, The Community Action Team coordinates the Sock It To ‘Em  sock drive every year in an effort to make sure “every homeless person in Long Beach has at least one pair of new, warm, dry socks this season,” according to organizer Justin Rudd. These socks will be donated to the homeless people living in our neighborhoods in the streets and parks, along with Long Beach homeless service providers.

Do you want to help? You can purchase socks directly. You can make a donation to the C.A.T. You can even host a collection at your school, work, church or home. This drive lasts through the end of January, so you have plenty of time to make a difference…
