Make a donation to the Community West Foundation next Tuesday and they will match the gift. This means we will be able to double the number of socks that we buy. We can provide twice as much help to get people inside on the coldest winter days coming up. We can buy two tents instead of one with your donation, and we can buy twice as many boots this winter as we did last year. In 2014-15 season, we purchased over 400 pairs of boots for the men and women who do not go into shelter. We helped 28 people with housing assistance or first months rent and we gave out 1,200 really warm winter socks. Help us do the same in 2015-16 as we prepare for a wet Cleveland winter.
We have a web page dedicated to the Socks Plus campaign, and we ask that you tweet about your donation on Tuesday. Maybe send a picture of your socks that you are wearing when you make your Giving Tuesday donation. We are at the Clevhomeless on Twitter and use the hashtag #SocksPlus.
