Sock Collections & Distributions

We collaborate with schools, community organizations, and businesses and have collected thousands of pairs of new socks through one-night events, corporate partnerships that incentivize giving, and sock drives that run between 2-4 weeks.

Distributions are done on foot by volunteers in public parks and train stations, on subway platforms and sidewalks, and through partnerships with mobile food distributors. We serve individuals in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and Manhattan.
