The Difference A Sock MakesOctober 20th, 2009
One of my favorite things in this life is pulling clean laundry out of the dryer, and slipping my cold feet into a pair of snug warm socks. There’s really nothing quite like it. Torrential downpour and chilly wind in the city’s dismal winter months makes the experience that much more rewarding.
As we prepare for the holidays, and gear up for what is traditionally the busiest time for St. Anthony’s, we take note of these items like socks that make a big difference in such a small low-cost way.
Imagine if instead of out of a drawer or dryer, the socks you were sliding on in the morning were the same wet ones you braved the rain in last night, and for the previous few days for that matter. Many of our homeless guests at St. Anthony’s are on their feet and perhaps don’t have a place to rest and recharge. A clean new pair of socks are not an accessory or afterthought, they are a piece of refuge and reenergizing that we can offer to make that day better.
You can be a part of that refuge, bring in clean new socks for guests at St. Anthony Foundation. Or hold a drive with friends, coworkers or church groups and gather socks to bring in for our Curbside Donation Drive.
