Better Banks announces the start of its annual Socktober Sock Drive benefitting the children of Children’s Home Association of Illinois in Peoria. The Sock Drive is a month long community event collecting new socks in any size for both girls and boys, of all ages.
Socks are the most needed and the least donated item of clothing. While many people donate clothing to shelters and other non-profit organizations, very few people donate socks. Additionally, many organizations don’t accept gently used socks, so the need continues to grow.
