Senior sock drive 2019

We’ve been here in Illinois for almost a year now and we have just recently found a new nursing home to fall in love with. (Washington Christian Village)

Last year was the first year we collected socks for a nursing home in Dallas Texas. With the support of friends and family Ellie was able to donate 140 pairs of socks. She and a friend had a blast handing the socks out. They even were able to sing Jesus Loves Me with the residents who joined in. Seriously! The sound of all the voices in one room singing such a simple song was beautiful. I had tears.

It’s September and it’s time to collect socks again. If you would like to donate socks we would greatly appreciate it. We are collecting long plain white men tube socks size 6-12.

The cold weather is coming quickly and socks are a top need by residents in a senior citizen home.

How can you help?

1. Donate a pack of long plain white men tube socks size 6-12.

*We chose to only collect men socks because they work best for men and women.

Last year we were so blessed to have friends and family from far away send packs of socks in the mail and through amazon. We really appreciate that commitment!

2. Pray that God does more than warm the feet of those who wear the socks but that God warms their hearts.

We are so excited to do something for our new community with Ellie! We thank you in advance for your support.

We will be collecting socks through September.

We pray you can be a part!

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events! I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! This past January I made a promise to God that I would faithfully write a devotional each week. I wanted to have 12 strong ones to post by the end of the 2018. I hit 12 and decided to start a blog. I pray that you take the time to read what God has placed in my heart. I know He has something to say to you!
