The first-ever GDC Sock Drive is being held this year to benefit the homeless community through the St. Anthony’s Foundation. Why socks? A decent pair of socks is a small but significant gift which helps address a huge need in the homeless community. New socks can be uplifting, improve one’s health, and provide a welcome feeling of comfort and warmth.
The program makes it easy for GDC attendees to contribute by simply bringing a new pair of socks to GDC and leaving it in one of the donation bins located in the North Lobby, South Lobby, the exhibition level, and West Lobby. The ideal socks are men’s or women’s warm wool socks, preferably black, gray or another dark color. Cotton crew socks with reinforced toes and heels are also great.
