A Sock Drive For Peninsulans In Need
Homeless people are on their feet all day, and the only pair of socks they own are very likely to be wet here on the Peninsula.
In response to this need, Long Beach resident Randa Timmons, who has made more than 1500 “Warmlies,” caps and scarves for local people in need, approached our own Keleigh Schwartz to join her in holding a sock drive. Alissa Stevens, Kathy Colvin, and Sue Moretz were quick to agree to help, and the sock drive was launched 24 hours later.
Community groups, churches, and concerned citizens are asked bring new socks to:
• beachdog.com in Long Beach
• Crab Pot Seafood Market & Restaurant in Long Beach
• Chinook Coffee Company in Chinook, or
• Forgotten Treasures Antiques & Collectibles in Ocean Park.
…between November 1 and December 31.
All sizes, infant to adult, are needed. The BEST choice is antimicrobial, dark, athletic or wool socks but all new socks are accepted.
WARM SUPPLIES other than socks can be donated to: Ocean Park Food Bank 1601 Bay Ave, Ocean Park, Washington 98640 Open Tue-Fri: 10:00 am-3:00 pm, 360-665-6567.
We’re pleased to report that Peninsula Poverty Response will be distributing socks from our No Mo Cold Toes Sock Drive. Their event, Project Homeless Connect, is scheduled for January 28th at the Long Beach Elks Lodge #1937. Volunteers are needed!
