The Socks for Seniors Holiday Sock Drive collects and distributes packages and pairs of new socks each year. Our goal is to provide at least one pair of socks to nursing homes residents and senior shut-ins.
You Can Help! It’s As Easy As 1,2,3!

Any box. Any size. Make it a fun project. Get everyone involved.

Drop-Off at the Life Essentials’ office by December 9th.
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.
Socks For Seniors and it’s volunteers, like Life Essentials, 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.
Life Essentials will be joining with a number of organizations and businesses throughout Montgomery County to establish collection stations. For more information about drop-off locations or to establish a collection station, please contact Life Essentials at 937-586-0545 or email.
