Socks For Sandy...Passing It On

Many of us have donated to the Red Cross, hoping to help people in need after Hurricane Sandy.
Here's another quick and easy way to help in a more immediate way~

Socks For Sandy is a simple idea~
Send socks to comfort those in shelters.
Go further and send hats or gloves.
For those of us who are too far away to help the area, I think this is a great way to lend a helping hand.

Laura from the blog The Shed says this:

We're focusing on providing warm socks, gloves and winter hats to those who need it most right now.

You can help us gather up some warmth to share by collecting socks, gloves and winter hats - for men, women and children of all ages - and sending them to:

Socks for Sandy
P.O. Box 520
Little Egg Harbor, NJ  08087

Please mail by Friday, November 9, since the need is urgent. 

I will receive all packages and immediately take these to the local hurricane shelter for distribution. Any excess will be given to the other hurricane shelters up and down New Jersey's coastline. 

This can be a great project to involve your kids in, because it all comes down to giving a bit of warmth to someone in need.

What started as an idea has blossomed into warmth. And it is simple to get involved.
