The cold is COMING our city’s homeless are not prepared.
Imagine waking up this morning after a cold and rainy night spent outside with a low of 47 degrees. This is the harsh reality for many in our homeless population, and it is only November.
There is a simple way to provide the most basic of needs to the homeless in our city:
- Run to your nearby store and grab a few packs of adult AND child/youth- sized socks and underwear, TODAY.
- Next, deliver them to SAMM (address and hours below) OR to your local clothing closet, food pantry or congregation. Be sure to tag your donations with #compassionSA (with sharpie or a sticker!)
- Better yet? Host a sock and underwear drive at your congregation or organization.
Did we mention that this is a GREAT way to involve children of all ages?
Here is a printable download to pass out and/or insert in communications within our congregations or organizations highlighting the Top 8 Facts about Socks, the Cold and Homelessness.
