The 3rd Annual Sock Drive Goes Global

Support for Sock Granny's Sock Drive is growing everyday.

Our 3rd annual Sock Drive is getting ready to start again October 1, 2015! A simple way to help those who need socks the most - clean out your "used sock drawer" (clean and no holes) and give them to the Sock Granny as I make sure the socks go directly to the homeless and mentally ill.

Introducing a NEW features to our Sock Drive in 2 ways.

1. This year we are going Global with our sock drive by Helping people become Aware of giving socks in their neighborhoods. No cost but you do need a big,kind heart. Turn your office and school gift giving parties into Sock Gifts for the homeless.

2. More exciting news about our Global plans soon. (I'm waiting to hear from my contact in Paris) Next time you bring a souvenir home from a trip why not bring a pair of socks for the Sock Granny to give homeless with cold, infected, painful feet.... with a special note telling them where the socks came from. Think of the life changing impact that pair of gift socks could have on one person!! Sock Granny is going Global - please join me in warming the heart as well as the feet.
