Filling boxes with Socks for the homeless

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.346.1799

Our Coldwell Banker NW office makes it a point to make a difference in the communities we serve.  We found out the number one need for the homeless with the cold weather approaching is SOCKS! Who knew?

Our office immediately set out on a mission to collect SOCKS for men, women and children in shelters and on the street.   We now have two boxes filled and are working on a third! By the end of the week who knows how many we will have!

We are also accepting gloves, hats and scarves.  Once collected, Mobile Loaves and Fishes will distribute them to those in need. 

Love the responsivness of all our agents! It's that time of year to think of others and how best we can help. Thanks, CB United NW!!

Hi Dorie

What a wonderful thing to do for those in need. It's always such a good feeling to do something like this, as well as to see how others respond positively, too.

Morning Dorie.

So many in need, so little time.  Even when Christmas is over there are those who needs our help all year round.

Good morning, Dorie... I suppose if we'd thought about this issue long enough, we would have known. What a wonderful cause. I love it. Right now, my office has baskets out for contributions of food. There's just so much need out there.

We take for granted how important socks are, such a worthwhile drive for those that don't have socks.

Hi Dorie -- our office has done similar efforts in the past and the outpouring of donations was quite generous including some from ActiveRain members who read my announcement posts here and on Facebook.

Dorie,

What a wonderful item to donate.  I have been known to order bunches of socks from Amazon and sent them to friends who are affiliated with Coldwel-Banker.  I had a friend in high school who loved socks, and became a famous sock designer in the process.
