JYP kicked off Socktober Fest with two donations of 1,000 Under Armour Socks — 2,000 SOCKS TOTAL — to The Joy of Sox and Center for Family Services Mother and Child!
Center for Family Services Mother and Child provides temporary housing in Woodbury, New Jersey for women over the age of 18 who are currently experiencing homelessness and either pregnant or parenting. They provide the tools to help women strive to become self-sufficient by educational workshops, attending supportive counseling, and helping them meet their educational and employment goals!
Jaws Youth Playbook started working with Joy of Sox in their annual Socktober Fest in 2020 for their drive to help the homeless. This year, we we’re able to match our donation of 1,000 pairs of socks to be distributed to homeless shelters throughout the Philadelphia area. 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.
