Join Centennial in collecting socks to help those experiencing homelessness

The City of Centennial is collecting socks to help Coloradans experiencing homelessness this winter, beginning Thursday, November 3 through Tuesday, January 17. These new socks, of all sizes and age groups, benefit the Sock It To ‘Em Campaign, a Denver nonprofit serving local homeless shelters. Socks are the #1 clothing need of those experiencing homelessness, and having clean, dry socks to wear regularly 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 904,565 pairs of socks in 41 states. 

To participate, collection boxes are available at various locations throughout the City, and beyond, for participants to drop off new socks. This year’s primary collection boxes are available at the locations outlined below.
