Update!  Thank you so much for your donations!  With your help we were able to donate 800 pairs for socks to the Portland Rescue Mission!

We’re hosting a sock drive for the month of December!
This is the second year for the drive and last year, with your help, we were able to donate 672 pairs of brand new socks (plus some hats and gloves) to our neighbors at the Portland Rescue Mission in Old Town. This year we’re teaming up with RDI PDX and are hoping to top 1k pairs!
Living and working in Old Town Portland I cross paths with the homeless community every day.  Last year I started the sock drive after observing that one of these neighbors had no socks on under his shoes on a particularly wet, cold Portland day. To be honest, the sight of his worn out feet really hurt my heart.  I realize that socks are not going to solve the major problems our homeless neighbors face but we do hope that the simple pleasure of putting on a new, clean, dry pair might provide some much needed comfort (both physical and emotional!) during this wet, cold winter.  The new socks will be donated to the Portland Rescue Mission which is located just a few blocks from my office and provides countless services to the homeless men, women and children of our city.  

There are three ways to donate to the drive!  The new socks may be dropped off, or mailed, to either the Blum or RDI offices in downtown Portland. 

600 NW Naito Parkway Suite B
Portland, Oregon 97209

1220 SW Morrison Suite 210
Portand, Oregon 97205

Or, you can make a monetary donation via our Fundrazr page which will then go directly to the purchase of socks! An 8 pack of men’s athletic socks generally costs around $10.
