If you hadn’t noticed, AFullCup has a member on the Hanes Comfort Crew! In the spirit of the Hanes Virtual Sock Drive (which has been completed, thank you to everyone who participated!), Hanes also provided socks to local charitable causes for their Hanes Comfort Crew members.
I received 200 Pairs of Hanes Socks (Men, Women, Boys, & Girls)
A local church in Hampton Roads is hosting their 3rd Annual Stocking Drive.
Socks for stockings, right? Seemed like the perfect “fit” for this donation.
The goal for this year: 850 stockings. 750 for kids, 50 for women, and 50 for men distributed locally to those in need (TWICE as much as last year). Whether homeless, unemployed, under-employed, financially challenged due to unforseen circumstances, or what have you, as long as there’s a need for some Christmas cheer in the form of a thoughtful and useful gift, that’s the purpose of these stockings. The stockings will be handed out in Hampton Roads communities Friday, December 23rd.
We stuffed stockings this week. As you can see, the 200 pairs of Hanes socks nicely complemented the massive donations from the local church members.
Assembling the stockings brought on the Christmas spirit while we worked together as a team.
The goal was to put together 850 stockings, but the goal was exceeded! We ran out of stockings and started using hats, cups, and even tying together gift items with ribbon to create more “stockings” to hand out. I would easily estimate we ended up with 1,000+ gift packages / stockings!
Thank you again, Hanes, for your generous contribution to this wonderful cause! There will be 200 people kept more comfortable this Christmas thanks to those socks.
