Sock It to Homelessness

We collected almost 7,000 socks during our open house on November 18, and hundreds more have been pouring in since then.

Thank you so much for your generosity!!!

Comfort tired feet.  Lift weary spirits.  Give someone hope.

It is sock time once again at Operation Nightwatch!

Our goal is to collect 20,000 pairs of socks to give out to our homeless friends.

What a difference a new pair of socks can make to someone with wet feet, struggling to survive, day-to-day.
Socks are so important. Can we count on you to help us reach our goal?

Our annual Sock-It to Homelessness sock drive kicks off on

Sunday, November 18, from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm

This is a family-friendly event, with kids of all ages welcome. Stop by, drop off the new men’s socks you have collected. Stick around if you want, take a quick tour of our building. We always welcome helpers to un-package the socks and count them as they come in. And if you can’t make it on November 18, we are happy to receive socks from you through the year!

Socks won’t solve the homeless crisis in Seattle, but socks can keep homeless people hopeful, knowing there are neighbors like you, who care.

Let’s start collecting socks to “Sock It to Homelessness!”
