Socks are often overlooked, underappreciated, and taken for granted. For those struggling with homelessness, a donation of clean, warm socks can be truly life-changing. That's why Freeland Foot and Ankle Clinic is proud to introduce our 3rd Annual Warming Soles Sock Drive. Keep reading to learn how you can help us reach our goal and donate much-needed socks to those who need them the most.
When is the Warming Soles Sock Drive?
We will be accepting donations of new socks for the whole month of February. Please only bring new, unused socks. We are not taking donations of shoes or slippers at this time (that's what our Annual Flip Flop the World Shoe Drive is for!)
How Can I Donate?
To participate in the Sock Drive, donations of new socks can be dropped off at our Freeland, MI office, located at 7305 Midland Rd, Suite 2 during our normal office hours. You can check out our office hours here.
Let's get your whole family, class, or office involved! Set up a bin in your home, office, or classroom and encourage others to donate a few pairs of new socks. Then, drop them off at our office before the end of February. If your workplace, business, or other organization wants to make a donation, contact us! We'd love to get a picture of your team and their donations.
Where Will My Donations Go?
After tallying up all the donations, our team will take a trip to the East Side Soup Kitchen in Saginaw, MI to drop them off. From there, the socks will be distributed to those in need of some warmth during these cold winter months. Wearing clean, dry socks is a great way to ensure your feet stay warm, healthy, and happy.
Interested in learning more? Give us a call or text us at 989-695-6788, or fill out the form on the right. The team at Freeland Foot and Ankle Clinic, the East Side Soup Kitchen, and the community as a whole appreciate your willingness to give back. We are all neighbors, Mid-Michigan, and it's time to lend a helping hand!
