Sock it to ‘me Sock Campaign

For the 2023 Mid-Year Meeting Service Activity, Beta Alpha Psi will ask that all attendee bring socks to donate to local homeless shelters.         

We ask that you bring NEW quality socks for men, women and children experiencing homelessness and drop them off at the registration area. All schools that participate will earn a Reaching Out Service Activity (ROA).

We thank you in advance for participating in this years’ service event!

Did you know?

  • Socks are the #1 clothing need of those experiencing homelessness
  • Socks wear out faster than any other article of clothing and are the least donated. Dirt and grime get in between the socks and the already ill-fitting shoes and friction does the rest.  Add moisture and it rapidly increases.
  • Those experiencing homelessness have no way to really wash their socks.  A pair of socks might last 2-3 days if they’re lucky for they’re often walking 5-10 miles a day.
  • Many know that socks are the #1 clothing need of those who find themselves homeless, but what they don’t know is that one of the main reasons a person who is homeless goes to the ER is a foot ailment.  They get blisters and sores that get infected and they often loose toes and or a foot and sometimes die.  The number one way to prevent that is clean dry socks to wear on a regular basis.  So, we are not only helping people to feel good and have comfort we are helping to keep them out of the hospital.

Pittsburgh is in Allegheny County.

There are more than 800 people experiencing homelessness.

  • 2,836 children throughout a school year will experience homelessness in Allegheny County
  • It was recorded that 106 veterans were homeless in Pittsburgh
