2nd Annual Winter Warriors

Winter Warriors Rockin’ Socks 2016

Why socks?

According to the Salvation Army, the number one requested item of homeless shelters across the country is socks. Families in shelters may get several charitable donations but socks usually aren’t one of them. Can you imagine not having nice warm socks throughout the duration of a crucial Winter?? If you’re homeless, chances are, you walk a few miles (or more) a day to get to your destination(s); which can easily cause great wear and tear on your limited amount of footwear. No one should have to go through that — here at Tru Heart, we believe that everyone deserves comfortable, clean, dry, socks!

So… how do we help fix this?

Some things in life are complicated – this isn’t one of them. Tru Heart, Inc. will be taking on the initiative by collecting sock donations and distributing them to various homeless shelters across the capital region.

Nice! Now, how can I help?

We will be hosting a sock drive on Saturday, February, 6th at Crossgates mall! Please join us, by coming to the mall to donate socks, challenging friends and family members to do the same or by spreading the word to your networks!
