Socks for Seniors is an annual community service project through which we organize collecting NEW socks to be distributed to elderly in local area nursing homes around the holidays.
The program begins with Make A Difference Day Saturday October27 - The Official Kick-off of the 2012 Socks For Seniors Campaign and runs thru Christmas.
We are looking for local area coordinators near Grand Forks to help with collecting socks this year.
There are two major ways that you could help us-
1. Help us promote Socks For Seniors. We are available for interviews. Media support in 2011 helped us grow the program into over 250 cities coast to coast. Complete information is available on our website about the program which my wife and I started 11 years ago. It is 100% volunteer based. We neither take or make money from it. We do not collect money, we collect SOCKS!
If you could schedule a time for an interview to help promote Socks For Seniors near Grand Forks please visit this link:
In 2011 we did hundreds of media interviews. This form will help us keep everything organized so (hopefully) nothing falls thru the cracks!
2. Host a Sock Drive. It all starts with 1 person, 1 box, 1 location. It’s easy…and all the socks stay in the local Grand Forks area! If you have a nursing home, assisted living center or other senior community in mind for distribution – GREAT! If not,we will help connect you with a local senior community for distributing the socks at the end of the sock drive.
If you can decorate a box and find a location or locations for boxes – that’s all there is to it. Then together we can promote the sock drive.
