Socks For Sandy – Hurricane Relief Effort


Laura is a fellow blogger and lives in the 

Little Egg Harbor area of New Jersey. 

Her home was not damaged…


Many were.


After the devastation, Laura discovered many

 people were barefoot, without so much as a 

pair of socks to slip on to keep their feet

This is a first hand photo.

This is a picture of Laura’s next door neighbor’s father’s home – or rather what’s
left of it – in West Creek, New Jersey, which is only 10 minutes north from here on Route 9.


This knowledge evolved into a 

campaign to gather socks & underwear. 

—All sizes/ages are needed for both male and female—

To offer some warmth and comfort to those in

 need. There is a new storm set to blow in.

So the need is great.

And time is short.

Can you help?



Please mail as soon as possible since the need is urgent.

Please mail to:


Socks for Sandy
P.O. Box 520
Little Egg Harbor, NJ  08087

Laura will receive all packages and immediately take them to the local hurricane shelter for distribution. 

Any excess will be given to the other hurricane shelters up and down New Jersey’s coastline. 

This can be a great project to involve your kids in, because it all comes down to giving a bit of warmth to someone in need.

What started as an idea has blossomed into warmth. And it is simple to get involved.


Another option:

American Red Cross
This is still the fastest way to get your money into the hands of those who need it the most.

If you are so inclined.. here is a direct link to 
Donate to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief.

You can also text REDCROSS to 90999 
to make a $10 donation


I want to thank my blogger friends from all over the country who are making Socks for Sandy a reality
.


I hope you can help us spread a little warmth.

And if you’re not able.. can you help us spread the word by pinning tweeting or sharing this post.

    I mailed some off last week. My college roommate lives on the barrier island next to Egg Harbor called Ocean City NJ it was not hit as hard as the eye of the storm passed over but her parents had three feet of water in their home and business. I know she said that the generosity that everyone has shown is so amazing. Socks for Sandy is a great way to help out.

    This is awesome!! We are also collecting items to take to the Rockaways. We have families taking supplies this coming weekend. I will also be buying extra socks to send to Laura. I will spread the word about this collection… Thank you Shannon for passing along.

    What a brilliant little ray of hope in a storm ravaged place. May plenty of socks find their way to needy homes….and quickly.
    The compassion out there in blogland is overwhelming
