October 27th, 6pm at Trinity Lutheran College

We asked, they answered. What do they need? Socks!!

Looking around Everett, it’s easy to see that there are many people in need. In an effort to reach out, we asked a few homeless folks what we could do to help them. What did they really need? Something simple? Something helpful? And the answer that always came back: SOCKS.

And so we’re collecting socks. Please donate New Adult Pairs. Collection bins can be found at various locations around Everett. Check http://www.Socktoberfest.org for an updated list of locations.

And then, on Sunday, October 27th at 6pm, all are invited to the Trinity Lutheran College commons (with or without socks) to celebrate the 3nd annual Socktoberfest! There will be live music, bratwurst, door prizes, locally brewed root beer free shower services and SOCKS!!!

Here are a few ways you can help:

1. Host a sock bin in your place of business or worship: Just contact us and we’ll provide you with what you need. A poster, a 1-sheet with the event info, and a sign for your sock bin. And if you need one, we’ll even get you a bin to collect the socks in.

2. Give a $ donation: 100% of the money donated to Socktoberfest will go towards socks, a hot meal for event attendees, and additional expenses for this year’s event. Every little penny helps!! Write checks to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church with “Socktoberfest” in the memo line. THANK YOU!!!

3. Volunteer: We’ll need help setting up, tearing down, decorating, greeting, BBQ-ing, serving rootbeer, sock modeling… you name it! Just let us know and we’ll include you in the day’s festivities. Many hands make light work, or so they say.

4. Donate socks: I don’t think it’s possible to collect too many socks for Socktoberfest. Last year we collected something close to 1,000 pairs! Let’s beat the record. Donate NEW ADULT SOCKS at a donation bin near you!

The sockless of Everett thank you for your help. And don’t forget, YOU’RE INVITED!!
