"SOCKS OF LOVE" VISION:
Footprints to Recovery is launching the first-ever national Socks of Love campaign and aims to donate 10,000 pairs of socks.
This goal involves extensive outreach in local communities, plus social media and email awareness campaigns using the #SocksOfLove hashtag. Socks are the least commonly donated items and therefore one of the most needed items at shelters.
Those who donate include not only community members but also Footprints to Recovery staff, clients, clients' families, alumni and business partners. Some individuals order/donate socks online and ship them directly to one of the five treatment centers (addresses listed below), while others prefer to purchase socks then drop them off in person at one of the locations.
Footprints to Recovery clients and alumni process incoming donations and coordinate their delivery. Each treatment facility will provide socks to local homeless shelters. In addition, the treatment facilities located in major metropolitan areas will assist clients in delivering some of the socks to public spaces that serve as shelters for individuals experiencing homelessness.
