Smithtown Youth Bureau Hosting # CozyToes Sock Drive

“The Youth Bureau will be involving school student leadership & community service groups in in this project, as well. I’m always amazed and so pleased to see the strong participation, support and generosity of our township’s students and parents, with programs like these. It’s important for young people to recognize that there are residents who are struggling and that they personally can do something to help. We’re always very proud of the efforts of our student volunteers and it’s even better when ‘helping others’ becomes a family activity.” -Stacey Sanders, Executive Director Town of Smithtown Youth Bureau

Below freezing winter temperatures are brutal for the homeless and otherwise less fortunate families. Supplying them with new, clean socks can make all the difference to stay warm.

Donated socks must be new or packaged. Already worn goods cannot be sanitized well enough, therefore cannot be put to good use. Socks are amongst the most valuable pieces of clothing to people without permanent housing. Other small items are more than welcome, such as gloves and scarfs. Even donating one garment will be substantive in keeping someone warm this winter.

“It’s always wonderful to see the entire community working together for such a wonderful cause… And our Residents have a way of coming together to help those most in need.”- Councilwoman Lisa Inzerillo
