SOCKTember 2023 will be kicking off soon. Join The DYOJO and Restoring Kindess for a Zoom call to discuss how you and your team can be involved with this community event.

What is SOCKTember?
It’s simple really. Most local community services NEED socks. It is one of the highest demand items for people in need of all ages. SOCKTember was started with the idea of picking up an extra pack of new socks whenever team members go to the store. If teams of contractors, customers, and community members did this we could raise a lot of new socks for local agencies.
