Now through Sunday, December 20th, our Deacons are collecting warm winter socks for our homeless neighbors and others in need. Our goal is to collect 150 pairs of socks, to “Warm the Soles” of individuals throughout Rockland County.
Why socks? Imagine spending your entire day outdoors, often in cold and wet weather…Imagine having no easy access to laundry, shower or bathroom facilities…and how much more difficult all this is during a pandemic. Imagine how good it would feel to have an extra pair of clean, warm socks at the end of a long day. It’s such a simple gesture, and can mean so much.
Our collection bin is inside the front door of the church, so be sure to bring in your socks by Sunday, December 20th. Monetary donations are also gratefully accepted, and we’ll do the shopping for you! (If you write a check, be sure to indicate “Socks” in the memo line.)
Contact Laura Bidon with any questions, or to arrange drop-off/pick-up at non-church hours.
Thank you for “Warming the Soles” of Rockland County!
