Sock-Box Locations

 Will your organization be next?

To hold sock drives, host special events, and install Sock-Boxes in as many locations as possible. 

We want to make it easy for you to get involved. You're invited to join in and make a difference - one pair of socks, and hearts, at a time!

December 14, 2015 - 7:00pm

Alarmist Brewing- 4055 W. Peterson, Chicago, Illinois

​Bring in 3 pairs of new socks, get a tour of the facility + lots of samples of delicious brew!

Something as simple as socks can make a significant impact on a person who is living without heat or a home.

Coming together as a community, we can warm the feet of many more at risk children, teens, individuals, and families than any of us could do alone.

The Vision

 sharing the warmth, spreading the love

NOW through February 7, 2016
