1,000 Socks to the Homeless

Jaws Youth Playbook teamed up with The Joy of Sox for their SOCKtober Fest & their 10 Year Celebration! Thanks to our friends at Under Armour, we were able to donate 1,000 SOCKS for this Drive to help the Homeless.  These much needed socks will be distributed to homeless shelters throughout the Philadelphia Region.  In total, 7,128+ pairs of new socks were donated to SOCKtober Fest. 

According to The Joy of Sox, the homeless rarely get donations of socks and have extensive foot problems due to the lack of clean socks.  Founded in 2010, Joy of Sox has given over 468,325 pairs of new socks (almost half-a-million!) to those experiencing homelessness in 33 states and five countries.
