You can help us #LOVEACITY this October during City Takers’ SOCKTOBER!
Socktober will be held October 21, 2017 @ Hurt Park, downtown Atlanta.
GOAL: Distribute 1,000 pairs of socks to the homeless
City Takers serves over 2,000 homeless individuals every year. The city of Atlanta has close to 7,000 people living on the streets, in shelters, and in transitional housing.
Our work with the homeless has identified a huge need for proper foot care and foot wear among our friends on the streets. Improper footwear, long periods of standing, and prolonged exposure to moisture lead to a number of foot diseases that cause infections that can become severe and disabling.
