Let’s start with the basics: Why socks? To those of us who are fortunate enough not to be homeless, it’s a reasonable question. After all, we often see people asking for food, for money—but never for socks. Most people don't know that socks are the most needed yet least donated article of clothing for those experiencing homelessness. And after speaking with dozens of college students I have seen that socks are also the easiest item to donate—a student may not have a lot of time or money, but they always have a drawer full of socks. As for those who are experiencing homelessness, many of them wear four or five pairs of socks throughout the winter in order to stay warm. So KKGAS engages college students and communities to work together to collect socks.
