The month of October means it’s officially “Socktober” season in Detroit.
“Socktober,” established by 1 Mother 2 Another founder, Ericka Woods, is a community fundraiser that collects socks donations throughout the entire month of October. The donated socks are then distributed to those without a home in Detroit, preparing them for the cold winter months.
In addition to socks, the drive also takes donations of new gloves and scarves for Detroit’s homeless. If you are interested in donating, contact Ericka Woods at 1mother2another.org or drop off your items at the following drop-off locations:
SnatchGang Studio – 26042 West 12 Mile in Southfield
Simplicity Lifestyle Salon – 18610 Grand River in Detroit
