We got an email from Bill in Greenwich about something his son Jackson has started for a great cause here in Connecticut.
Jackson is hosting what he calls his “Socktober” Sock Drive. I figured we would show some love and feature them in Tell Me Something Good. Jackson has a goal of collecting and donating 2000 pairs of socks throughout the month of October. He feels this is especially important as we enter the winter months. Which is true. He also learned that socks are one of the most needed items in homeless shelters. Donations can be new socks for both adults and children which Jackson will give to Inspirica in Stamford. Socks can be placed in any of the bins around town or can be delivered to Jackson himself.
Jackson’s SOCKTOBER donation bins can be found throughout the Greenwich community and at his house. In addition, socks can be purchased and donated at Threads and Treads.
Please help out our friend Jackson reach his goal of collecting 2000 pairs of socks to help those in need this winter and spread the word about SOCKTOBER!!
