Gubbio Project: The Great 2018 Sock Round-Up

We are collecting socks for homeless men and women which will be distributed by the Gubbio Project. The Project provides safe, quiet places for people to sleep during the day in local churches.

We accept both men’s and women’s socks. The socks should be new. Warm, thick, white socks are preferred. Dyed socks often do not work well with wetness or foot injuries.

Donations may be brought to the collection site in the City Center lobby through the end of October.

Donations can also be made through Amazon and other online suppliers. Please send to:

Thank you!
