Sock-It-To-Me September


Sock-it-to-me September

Here’s how it works:

Collect socks and underwear at your church, company, or organization throughout September

The group that donates the most socks wins the coveted Golden Sock Award

Help us collect 3,500 pairs of new socks! (Men’s preferred)

Why Socks? Why September?

As the seasons begin to change and the weather gets colder, the demand for socks increases dramatically. The #1 preventer of frostbite in the winter is a clean, dry pair of socks. For people who do most of their transportation by walking, having good foot health is critical.

How do I donate? 

Begin collecting socks! Get your friends, family, church members, co-workers, and anyone else you know to begin collecting socks! Place a box in your church, office, or community center. Then, bring them down to us at 23 E Adams any time Monday through Friday from 9-4 throughout September.

Contact Megh at mhollowell@noahprojectdetroit.org if you need to arrange a different drop-off time or if you have questions. Keep your eye on the scoreboard on this website and make sure your group is in the lead!

James has been a big part of the NOAH family since last September. James is one of the 106 individuals engaged through our Street Outreach, which began in April 2016. For people who are truly living on the streets, getting into housing can be very difficult and oftentimes overwhelming. However, Street Outreach engages these individuals and builds trusting relationships with them, allowing NOAH to support these individuals as they go through the arduous housing process. Of the 106 individuals Street Outreach has engaged, over 60 of them, roughly 56%, have been housed or connected to a housing agency as a result of Street Outreach. It's the smiles on people's faces like James, who just received his keys, that remind us of the importance of meeting people where they are, and building trust and companionship. ...
