Buy One, GIVE One

October 25, 2014

Let's collect socks for those in need this Socktober!For most of us, October is a month of haunted houses, horror movies and scary fun – but for many people, there is nothing scarier than homelessness. This month, ModSock wants to help show that even the smallest act of kindness can make a difference in our community.


For the week leading up to Halloween, we will be donating a pair of brand-new socks for each pair purchased in our store and online.


The Opportunity Council conducts a yearly survey of homeless people in Whatcom County. This year, there were 553 homeless people counted, including 82 homeless families with children. Since they can be difficult to contact, it is likely that the actual number of homeless people in Whatcom County is even higher.

The #1 most-requested item in homeless outreach centers is clean socks. For people on the street in the winter, cold, wet feet can lead to illness and pain. Socks brighten our lives, and we think it is only right that we share the love Bellingham has shown ModSock with the people among us who have the least.

So for each pair of socks purchased online or in person Oct. 27 – 31, ModSock will give a brand-new pair of socks to the Opportunity Council, a non-profit agency in Bellingham that provides services to homeless and low-income individuals and families. We are just a small part of a larger national effort called Socktober. To learn more, visit http://soulpancake.com/socktober/.
