Important Raffle Announcement / USF Homeless Program Sock Drive
Papa doesn't want presents! We have teamed up with Sajan Patel to bring our first USF Homeless Program Sock Drive. Donate new clean white socks - get a raffle ticket for one of the various gift cards we are giving out! So instead of a present, bring some socks!
Access to shoes and socks is often limited for the homeless men and women living in shelters and on the streets. Rain-soaked feet, ill-fitting shoes, constant standing and diseases like diabetes take their toll on the feet of homeless people. Every day, nurses and physicians treat a huge range of foot ailments - from trench foot to skin infections, to nail diseases. The best way to prevent such conditions is to keep feet clean and dry - very difficult if you spend your days outside.
Clean, white socks are a staple of homeless health care and make a real difference. Or if you want to do more, contact Sajan Patel at email@example.com and help out!
