Hello Dear Ones,

Every year Sacramento Loaves and Fishes has a sock drive for our homeless population.  The last two years I have asked friends to help me collect good, sturdy, warm socks that I offered to take to Loaves and Fishes.  Unfortunately, this has not been a very successful method.

This year, I'm hoping that kind-hearted, giving souls will donate money that I will use to purchase and donate those socks.  It can be done right here on the computer without having to go to the store, or to meet me somewhere, or driving to Loaves and Fishes!  You donate, and I do the rest of the work!  Win-win!  If you would like to know more about Loaves and Fishes and/or their sock drive, please use this link:  http://www.sacloaves.org/socks.  You can also donate to them directly online.

This is a charity  that I love, and the sock drive is near and dear to me.  My late aunt had an idea about socks many years ago that has stuck with me, and means a lot to me.  (Please see her note below.)  Many of us take our socks for granted, and may not ever give them a second thought.  Can you imagine having to walk everywhere you go, and without socks?  I have volunteered a lot at Loaves and Fishes, and I have seen some folks come in the dead of winter without them... and even worse sometimes.  It's a terrible way to spend a winter -- with cold, wet, tired feet. It's also a way to invite infection and illness.  Please help!

Christmas Note from My Aunt

Thank you in advance!  Anything and everything helps and is needed! Please don't think your donation may be too small; it adds up!  I promise I will spend every penny on good socks for these folks.

God bless and happy holidays!
