Socks for Seniors is a community-based sock drive providing new socks to nursing homes and senior shut-ins in time for the holidays.

How: Collect new adult pairs of socks in your workplace, neighborhood, family, and anyone else in your network. There is also a need for volunteers to help sort, pack, and distribute socks.

When: Start collecting now and drop off or mail donated socks by November 25, 2019.

Community Partners include:
Tobias Funeral Homes
CODE Credit Union
Lexis Nexis
WesBanco
American Family Insurance
Sam’s Club

Last year, the goal of 3,000 pairs was greatly exceeded with nearly 6,000 collected! A special Veteran’s Administration presentation of socks, more than 1,000 pairs, were given to men and women who have served our country.
