Since Hurricane Sandy devastated so many communities in New Jersey and New York two weeks ago we have been trying to find a way we could help. We discovered this wonderful effort, Socks For Sandy, put together by a local New Jersey blogger. They found that one of the greatest needs among the shelters in New Jersey were clean, warm socks and clean underwear. They are collecting packages of new, unused underwear for adults and children to be distributed to the victims of Sandy.
So, we have decided to set up our own collection of underwear and socks for Sandy victims at our shop and we will send the donations to Socks For Sandy for distribution. Stop by our shops anytime between 10am-6pm today (Tuesday 11/13) through Tuesday 11/20 and drop off a package of new, unused underwear and help us contribute to the relief efforts in New Jersey. We will be mailing the donations the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. If our efforts are well received we will continue to collect donations through the holidays.
Underwear and socks may seem like a small contribution, but a pair of clean, warm socks can be everything to one person who has lost everything. Thank you so much for your help and support!
*Socks for Sandy has expressed to us that their greatest need is for new, clean and unused underwear for men, women, teens and children.
