||.:: DONATE NEW SOCKS ::.
The holidays are a fun time of year with all the office parties, family gatherings, meetings with old friends topped off with all the bells, whistles, hustle and bustle of the season.
It's the friendliest and most giving time of year. But, for some it can also be a depressing time of year.
Our seniors can get lost in the shuffle.
Each year, thousands of lonely and financially challenged seniors struggle with the holiday blues. They dread facing the holiday season alone - some being without family or friends, some with the isolation of being a widow or widower. Some seniors just being away from children and grandchildren produces extreme loneliness that's exaggerated by festivities of the season.
Socks For Seniors is about bringing holiday cheer along with a pair of new socks to warm the hearts and cover the cold feet of our elderly seniors. The Socks for Seniors program benefits those living alone and in nursing homes.
Bring a warm smile and fuzzy warm pair of socks to a lonely senior.

||What kind of socks?
The funnier, funkier holiday styles you can find. Yes, we still can use traditional socks as well. The quote from 91 year old nursing home resident Emma Mae says it best.
"We're just old, not dead and we still have a sense of humor"
When giving Emma Mae the choice of socks at a nursing home distribution location she quickly choose the bright colored, striped, individual toe socks.
We do also want and collect the traditional tube socks for the seniors.
