Socks for Seniors is looking for local area coordinators near Lawrenceville to help with collecting socks this year.

Socks for Seniors is an annual community service project through which new socks are collected and distributed to the elderly in local area nursing homes around the holidays. The program runs through Christmas and is 100 percent volunteer based. They do not collect money, they collect socks.

Hosting a Sock Drive starts with one person, one box, one location. All the socks stay in the local Lawrenceville area. If you have a nursing home, assisted living center or other senior community in mind for distribution, you may donate there. If not, the program helps connect you with a local senior community for distributing the socks at the end of the sock drive. If you can decorate a box and find a location or locations for boxes, that’s all there is to it.
