The average homeless person walks ten miles a day, yet socks are the least donated item of clothing in homeless shelters. This year Hanes is donating 200,000 pairs of socks to homeless shelters across the United States.
Here is how you can help.
Find your nearest participating Hanes location to donate socks directly.
“For nearly a decade Hanes has donated hundreds of thousands of pairs of socks to The Salvation Army every winter. The impact that a donation of this size has on our centers is immeasurable. The donation is about more than just the physical socks — one pair of clean socks can have a positive effect on overall well‑being.”
— Lt. Col. Ron Busroe, National Community Relations and Development Secretary, The Salvation Army
