THE BLACK NEW YORK

IS IN ON THIS SOCK DRIVE!

Let's ring in the giving season with some giving! 

We're working with @nycsockdrive to get socks in shelters in NYC as the weather gets colder and colder. But we need your help! There are plenty of toes out there and we need them to be toasty to see another summer. 

Our favorite part is that we're accepting YOUR mixed-match socks!!!! 

"Housing is physical health care, housing is mental health care and housing is spiritual health care," said Urban Pathways Chief Operating Officer Ron Abad at last winter's annual memorial service for homeless New Yorkers. "Not having a home crushes the spirit, which leads to depression and stress."

HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP:

1. Donate to the Go Fund Me! With every donation brings a sock purchase. 

2. Make arrangements with us for an in-person donation and we'll do the rest! Contact us at theblacknewyork@gmail.com to coordinate! 

3. Send us your zip code and we'll tell you the closest shelter in your area for you to drop socks off at! Let them know you're working with NYC SOCK DRIVE - you're apart of a community!

** If the shelter is a 501c(3), it's TAX EXEMPT! Get paperwork and bring it when you're filing for tax season!

4. Come back to our site to check if there are any drop-off events! 

5. TELL A FRIEND! Even if you can't donate, your friend might be able to! Spreading the word is doing a big part of the work and we thank you!
