Sock Drive to Benefit Rosie's Place, Year Three

Our customers and employees came together again in February, 2022 to collect 547 pairs of socks and tights (plus several hats, scarves, and pairs of mittens again!). Rosie's Place distributed these items to the people seeking assistance at their facility during the late winter and early spring. We remain so grateful for everyone who helps make this yearly collection a success. Every pair makes a difference. Thank you.

In February, 2021, we ran our second Sock Drive to benefit Rosie's Place. This is now a yearly event and we were blown away by how generous our customers and employeers were. For our first drive in February, 2020 (just before the pandemic hit), we collected 337 pairs of socks. For the 2021 drive, we wanted to double the amount but everyone helped us go way above that - we collected 824 pairs of new socks plus 2 pairs of hand knit mittens, a hand knit hat, and 46 homemade, reusable masks.

We're so grateful for everything our customers and employees did to make 2021's drive such a success and we look forward to doing it again in 2022!

Rosie's Place was founded in 1974 as the first women’s shelter in the United States. Our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives.

Today, Rosie’s Place not only provides meals and shelter but also creates answers for 12,000 women a year through wide-ranging support, housing and education services. Rosie’s Place relies solely on the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporations and does not accept any city, state or federal funding. Thanks to these donations, 83 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to services for poor and homeless women.

J.P. Licks teamed with Rosie's Place in February, 2020 to collect socks from our customers as socks need to be donated in new condition and shelters are perpetually short on this essential clothing item. In exchange for donating new socks, customers received coupons to use on subsequent visits.
