Over 10,000 socks donated during Socktober 2017

Another year, another record-breaking drive. The numbers are in for Socktober 2017 and it's incredible:

  • 10,107 pairs of new socks raised for those in need
  • 74 total groups/individuals participated from 5 different states
  • 30 different nonprofits received donations

After last year's record-setting drive of 8,848 pairs, we we're hoping to hit the 10,000 mark in 2017. Thanks to the 74 groups and individuals that participated this year, we we're able to zoom past that mark for the first time ever. That includes groups from five different states — Missouri, Kansas, Kentucky, California and Florida.

So many people made this possible. From the Boy Scouts Heart of America Council and Girl Scouts of NE Kansas/NW Missouri to schools like Lakeview and Piper Middle School to individual families like the Langfords, bless you all. You made positive change on our communities, you made a difference in other lives and above all else, you made our world a better place.
