Thanks to previous Human of the Month Kari Patterson, we were inspired to organize a #COVIDSOCK Drive to bring smiles and thanks to the medical staff on the front lines of the pandemic. Why donate novelty socks during this crisis? Nurses and care-givers have been tucking scrubs into their socks and posting their #covidsocks on social media, bringing attention to the morale boost that fun socks can provide in these difficult times. Kari's incredibly heartfelt personal request for help sent to Sock It to Me inspired an immediate outreach to local medical facilities. We were able to donate over 300 pairs to Legacy, OHSU, and Providence, but discussions with Providence led to a broader donation partnership. Through a new “Donation Pack” on our website, you helped contribute to the effort and we exceeded our initial goal of 800 pairs! We distributed the socks to 10 Providence facilities, and even expanded the program to more facilities due to overwhelming response!
