Tom Costello, founder of the Joy of Sox, says "Many of the foot-related afflictions from which homeless people suffer - swelling, blisters, skin infections, even frostbite - can be avoided by wearing new, dry socks. But because socks generally aren't included in charitable clothing donations, most people in need go without them." He actually persuaded the Pennsylvania State Senate to recognize February 14 as National Socks for the Homeless Day.
"There are more than 14,000 homeless in Pennsylvania. We are so appreciative to every one who stopped in with their donation. We had participation from everyone from fellow Chamber members to a non-profit executive help far exceed our goal of 200 pairs," says Peggie Livingston, office manager, at Frailey Insurance and Financial Services.
J. Frailey, a registered representative of Nationwide Securities, LLC, continues
to encourage his team to create "community service" events. "Service to others is a natural extension of
our every day work. Events such as these
are a positive way to help
the less fortunate. It is people helping
people," states Frailey.
