Reston Serenity Smiles accepting donations
Socks are the single most-needed article of clothing among the homeless community and remain the least-donated items! Especially during winter months, keeping your feet warm with a good pair of socks can go a long way in preventing hypothermia for those living on the streets.
According to the results of the annual Point-in-Time Count — a regional census of the homeless population conducted every year on a single night in January — there were 6,904 homeless people in D.C and 1,059 in Fairfax County. (A total of just under 8,000).
Let’s do our part to ensure that ALL the homeless people in our community have a pair of good socks to wear!
The Barbera Foundation’s goal is to raise a total of 10,000 pairs of socks for the homeless! Please bring your gently used and or new socks to 11717 Bowman Green Drive – Reston, VA 20190
Note: This may seem obvious, but please make sure to wash your socks before donating them at the sock drive. Also we will only accept gently used socks and/or new socks. No holes please. Please put all of your socks in plastic bags before donating.
