Socks For Seniors©
A non-profit community service project to help
senior citizens keep their feet warm this winter.

Each year Socks for Seniors hosts it's annual Sock Drive along with Community Leaders and Volunteers. Families throughout the United States became involved with the Socks for Seniors project in 2002. Since that time the Socks for Seniors sock drive has grown tremendously and has become a nationwide network.

Community organizations across America are embracing it by volunteering, sponsoring sock hops and becoming involved in distributions. The Socks for Seniors program is a feel-good, low-cost Holiday project. A project that an entire family - whole community or seniors themselves can participate in.

The holidays are a fun time of year with all the holiday work parties, family gatherings, meetings with old friends topped off with all the bells, whistles,
hustle and bustle of the season.

It's the friendliest and most giving time of year.

But, for some it can also be a depressing time of year.
Our seniors can get lost in the shuffle.

Each year, thousands of lonely and financially challenged seniors struggle with the holiday blues. They dread facing the holiday season alone - some being without family or friends, some with the isolation of being a widow or widower. Some seniors just being away from children and grandchildren produces extreme loneliness that's exaggerated by festivities of the season.

We Need You!
Socks For Seniors and it's volunteers have one priority this Holiday Season and that is to bring holiday cheer along with a pair of new socks to warm the hearts and cover the cold feet of our elderly seniors. The Socks for Seniors program benefits those living alone and in nursing homes and yes even those seniors that are homeless.

Help us this Holiday Season. Bring a Warm Smile and Fuzzy Warm Pair of Socks to a lonely senior. 

They're worth just a pair of socks...Don't you think?

What kind of socks should you collect? C

Oh no! Not the traditional grip slippers or the tube socks! 

The funnier, funkier holiday styles you can find. Yes, we still can use traditional socks as well. We tend to use the philosophy of the residents when choosing the socks to purchase and the quote from 91 year old nursing home resident Emma Mae.

When giving Emma Mae the choice of socks at a nursing home distribution location she quickly choose the bright colored, striped, individual toe socks and immediately said " 

"We're just old, not dead and we still have a sense of humor" I want those!

From that point forward Emma Mae's comments have been the focal point for the socks that we choose to collect for these seniors.

We do also want and collect the traditional tube socks for the seniors of the Homeless Shelter and area Senior Shut-ins.
