17th Annual Sock It to Me Drive

Socks are the most requested and least donated article of clothing in homeless shelters. In an effort to help make this item available for those in need, the East Baton Rouge Parish Library’s Children’s Services Department will once again join with Baton Rouge Parents magazine’s 17th Annual Sock It to Me Drive to collect socks that will be distributed to area homeless shelters, the East Baton Rouge Council on Aging and Bethany House, which is a facility for cancer patients at the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center.

The drive will begin Monday, November 1, and last through Tuesday, November 30. Our goal is to collect at least 2,500 pairs and with your help, we will! Simply drop new, unworn socks in the collection box in the Children’s Room at each Library location. For more information, call Children’s Services at (225) 231-3760.
