Support Socktober at My Friend’s Place!
On average, My Friend’s Place serves 82 young people experiencing homelessness each day, and every young person is offered a new pair of socks and underwear on each visit.
For our youth, receiving a new pair of socks goes beyond making a fashion statement. In fact, new socks are key to supporting the health, wellness and hygiene of our youth. Being without clean socks, especially during the colder and wetter months, can lead to discomfort and foot ailments, especially when youth are travelling around the city primarily by foot and have extremely limited or no access to laundry facilities.
Help My Friend’s Place celebrate Socktober by contributing new socks, to ensure that we will have a steady supply for our youth in the coming months. Our goal is to collect 5,000 pairs this month and we need your help to make it happen!
New and packaged socks in adult sizes, both tall and short, are most needed. Socks may be dropped off at My Friend’s Place Monday – Thursday 9am to 5:30pm or Friday 8am to 5pm, at 5850 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028. Socks may also be ordered directly from our wishlist by clicking here!
