Our huge annual sock outreach will be on October 18th in downtown Atlanta’s Hurt Park. Our goal is to give away 1,000 pairs of socks to our friends on the streets. In our time working with the homeless of our city we have identified socks as being a big need and want for those who live on the street. Improper footwear, long periods of walking and standing, and prolonged exposure to moisture lead to a number of foot diseases that cause infections which can become severe and disabling and even life-threatening. Providing new socks helps prevent and alleviate skin conditions caused by wearing one pair of socks until they deteriorate from filth and wear. We will need volunteers to go out and hand out socks with us. We are accepting donations of new socks as well as donations to purchase socks. Be the church with us and give your time and/or resources to Socktober!
