LBI Kiwanis’ ‘Happy Feet’ Drive Collecting Socks

Jul 14, 2016

The Kiwanis of LBI recently initiated “Happy Feet,” a program through which new socks are being collected for children in need, homeless veterans and victims of domestic abuse.

“Along with our other Kiwanis family members, the Key Club and Builders Club at Southern Regional High School, new socks are being collected through Dec. 2,” said Faith Dixon, project coordinator. “This Kiwanis family is devoted to helping to improve the lives of children and our community. A warm pair of socks is the sought-after item among homeless in the United States. Clean socks prevent many common ailments, reduce bacteria and medical problems as well as warming cold feet.”

She said socks, as well as underwear, are often left out of clothing drives.

“I had heard about an underwear collection, so I thought that maybe we could collect socks,” Dixon said.

Drop-off points are Between the Sheets, 1012 Central Ave., and at Dixon’s home at 501 Shore Ave., both in Ship Bottom.

Monetary donations are also welcome. Checks can be made payable to Kiwanis LBI, P.O. Box 174, Ship Bottom, N.J. 08008.
