Every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. This October, Fun4GatorKids is joining Kid President and RAKE (Random Acts of Kindness Everywhere) to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.
How You Can Help
STEP 1. START A NEIGHBORHOOD SOCK DRIVE: Start a new sock drive! Or gather other basic essentials for your local shelter, as they prepare for winter.
STEP 2. GET YOUR FRIENDS INVOLVED! This is a great project to do as a family, with your school, your workplace, or your next door neighbors. Set a goal. Set a deadline. Make it happen!
STEP 3. SPREAD THE WORD! Share your community's story by using the hashtag #socktober. We want to spread stories of love and hope all month! Make it happen on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Your voice matters!
STEP 4. DONATE THE SOCKS! When your sock drive is done, take the new socks and other basic need items you've collected and bring them to any Fun4GatorKids Weekly Playgroup or deliver them yourself to a local shelter.
SOCKtober was launched by Kid President creator Brad Montague four years ago. It’s a movement to get kids and grown-ups to help the homeless in an easy, fun way. Learn more at soulpancake.com/socktober/.
