Centennial is collecting socks to help those experiencing homelessness

Join the City of Centennial in providing socks to those experiencing homelessness this winter. Through December 17, the City is accepting new socks of all sizes to benefit the Sock It To ‘Em Campaign, a Denver nonprofit serving local homeless shelters. Socks are the #1 clothing need of those experiencing homelessness.  Having clean dry socks to wear on a regular basis is the #1 way to avoid the ER with a foot ailment.  Since 2012 the Sock It To ‘Em Sock Campaign has given away over 800,000 pair of socks in 41 states.
