Denver’s homeless population is now twice what it was just a year ago. So, on December 12, 2012, Denver will celebrate its first ever “No Socks to Work Day” in an effort to support Denver’s homeless population. “No Socks to Work Day” asks workers to forego their socks for the day, donate a new pair of socks in their place, and sport bare ankles in the workplace in show of support for the campaign. The drive will be in full effect through Dec. 31, 2012 –– with the goal of collecting 50,000 pair of socks!
The act of going without socks is both symbolic and instructive as a startling reminder of the painful reality of going without socks during the cold winter months. There are several sock donation sites throughout the greater Denver metro area. To find a donation location near you, visit nosockstowork.org. This campaign is the brainchild of Small Business Drives America.
Nick Costanzo is co-owner of 10 Marco's Pizza restaurants in Colorado. All of these locations are collection sites for the new sock donations. In addition to his 10 restaurants, Costanzo has arranged to have the two other Marco's Pizza restaurants (in Colorado Springs) serve as drop off locations. He has also pledged to offer a 2-for-1 discount on pizza slices on 12-12-12 to any customer who brings in a pair of new socks for donation.
