Socktober 2023: Support Those In Need!

Make a difference this fall with Socktober

Halloween, Oktoberfest, Breast Cancer Awareness, and even National Cheese Curd Day are just a few of the reasons why October is such a popular month. With all the events, it’s easy to get caught up and not realize that some people in our community need help the most during colder holiday months. As the winter chill increases, so too does the need to provide warm clothes and essential materials to the less fortunate. 

In hopes of helping remedy this problem, Socktober was established as an annual sock drive throughout October to aid the homeless and people in need and encourage people to donate cozy socks to ensure the warmth of more vulnerable citizens. 


Participation is easy — just sign-up using the form below and then collect cozy socks and other essential items throughout the month. When October ends, an Uncover KC representative will take care of picking up the donated items and coordinate the delivery of the items. If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to get your community involved, set-up a donation box and encourage your friends, classmates, coworkers or family members to donate. 


While October may be a month filled with fun and fright, not everyone has the opportunity to enjoy it comfortably. Join us in sharing warmth and joy to more people as the fall season begins. 


Come join us on Saturday, March 30 for our annual signature event – a photo scavenger hunt in downtown KC. All funds help provide grants for our experiential learning programs.
