Did you know that clean socks are the most requested item of clothing from local shelters and charities in Raleigh, NC? Although they are highly requested, they are the least donated. Carolina Restoration Services partnered with local charity organizations to provide much needed socks for those in need. Continue reading to learn about Team Carolina Cares and our Sock It To Homelessness sock drive.
At Carolina Restoration Services, we make a priority to give back to the communities we serve. Our most recent charity drive was our Sock It To Homelessness sock drive. New socks are an extremely valued item for homeless people in the Triangle because they help protect them from serious health risks due to cold weather. Here are some important facts about socks:
In cold conditions, frostbite can occur in 30 minutes or less! Warm, well-fitting socks can prevent this for many people.
Poor circulation puts feet at risk every day. Proper socks can provide a simple, but important layer of protection between feet and limb threatening conditions.
Clean, well-fitting socks are a vital part of keeping feet healthy. The impact is immediate and ongoing!
Wearing the right socks for the right activity can go a long way towards foot health. Those struggling with homelessness don’t have that option. But we can help!
With the help of our team of compassionate employees and clients throughout the community, Team Carolina Cares was able to provide hundreds of socks to those in need. Carolina Restoration Services donated the the socks we raised to a local charity, Note in the Pocket.
“Note in the Pocket provides clothing to impoverished and homeless schoolchildren in Wake County with dignity and love. Note in the Pocket believes that it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school.” Learn more about Note in the Pocket and how they help people in the Triangle by visiting their website.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to Team Carolina Cares’ Sock It To Homelessness sock drive!
