Sock Drive 2016

Seattle Sock Drive

We are collecting new men’s socks for those in need! Please donate a pack or seven!

All socks donated will go to the Union Gospel Mission, where they hand out 50 pairs a day! New socks feel fantastic especially if you are struggling on the streets. We started this sock drive last year and collected about 450 pairs, but that is only 9 days of socks for the homeless!

We are keeping our ambitions goal of over 10,000 pairs, but we need your help! Grab any men’s socks or pack of socks and drop them off at our Cap Hill, Ballard or Regrade (6th & Lenora) location and we will add them to our donation pile. If a few woman’s socks get donated, that’s ok, but mens socks are generally thicker and can be used by women and men in need!

You can help without carrying socks around with you! Simply order them and have them shipped to our Cap Hill location!
Here is a quick link to a 10 pack.
Our address is:
Skillet Diner
c/o Sock Drive
1400 East Union Street
Seattle, WA 98122

Thank you for helping us help those in need this winter!
