We at the LA River Corp are joining the Sock-it-to-em' campaign to help homeless people along the LA River. Please help us! We are accepting new sock donations until Jan.31st. You can bring socks to our office located at 520 W. Avenue 26 Suite 475 Los Angeles CA 90065. You can also bring socks to any LARRC event (Like the Night Run on Thursday at the Bowtie). Last year, Justin Rudd and his team collected over 3000 socks! We hope to add a large contribution to this wonderful cause and help the homeless have #nomorecoldfeet.
The Sock-it-em' campaign was started by Justin Rudd and his Community Action Team or CAT four years ago. Justin was inspired after seeing homeless people along the river with dirty/wet socks and decided to do something about it. Justin and the CAT team plan on dropping socks off not only along the river, but at various homeless shelters and mental health centers in Long Beach. You can find out more information by checking out the Sock-it-em' campaign on Facebook.
