Introducing the RMC’s new “Socksgiving”
sock collection campaign!

As fall kicks off and the holiday season quickly approaches, we invite you to consider participating in something NEW this year. . .

The Rocky Mountain Conference is challenging all of our churches to participate in our new “Socksgiving” campaign. We have partnered with the Sock It To Em Sock Campaign, a 501c3 Public Charity begun by First Plymouth Congregational, Englewood church members Sue Lee and Phillis Shimamoto. Socks are the #1 clothing need of those experiencing homelessness.

Clean, dry socks are essential for the health and wellbeing of folks on the streets. Socksgiving offers your congregation the opportunity to donate new socks for men, women, children, and infants to any shelter or organization you choose.

You can make a great social impact, one pair of socks at a time! All the materials you need to participate in the RMC’s Socksgiving are available below.

Participation is easy! Simply follow the instructions on the How-To Guide. The RMC and Sock It To Em Sock Campaign will award the churches with the greatest number of socks per capita (per member) and the greatest total number of donations. Good luck and happy donating!

Socks

How to Participate:

  • Keep an eye out for your Socksgiving materials in the mail the week of September 27th.
  • The campaign runs from October 20 – November 17, 2019
  • Let your congregants know of the need for NEW socks for men, women, and children by hanging the Socksgiving Poster on your bulletin board or welcome area.
  • Use the provided Suggestions for Promotion copy in your newsletters and Sunday bulletins to increase awareness about the campaign in your church.
  • Supply a collection box and place the Collection Box Sign on it. Additionally, you could have youth and kids decorate the box to get everyone involved!
  • Keep a tally of the socks your congregation has donated using the Tab Sheet and send the number to Daryl Schreiber on November 4 (midway through the campaign) and on November 20 send the total number to her.
  • Take photos of your church members getting involved and share them on your social media pages using #Socksgiving!
  • After the campaign ends, you’ll deliver the socks to the shelter, service, or agency of your choosing and watch “Socksgiving” turn into “Thanksgiving!” Send info on where you delivered your socks to Sue Lee and Daryl Schreiber.
