The Sn’ock Project

Stuff a sock with snacks for the homeless! An in-office project.

Popping into a local store to pick up a snack when you’re hungry isn’t easy if you’re homeless without a penny to spare.

The Sn’ock Project provides the most vulnerable among us with a variety of healthy snacks plus a new pair of clean, cozy socks.

Your group of co-workers comes together to stuff one sock from each pair with unopened, healthy snacks.  When the sock is full, tie it up with a ribbon and attach a friendly note. Then put the two socks along with a small bottle of water into a zip lock bag.

What to stuff your socks with?

Any of the following:

  • Nuts
  • Pretzels
  • Granola bars
  • Fruit bars
  • Raisins
  • Dried fruit
  • Chips
  • Chewing gum or mints
  • Peanut butter or cheese crackers

For a truly hands-on and rewarding experience, we suggest that your group distribute your “sn’ocks” to the homeless on the street.

Or, if your office is in a smaller city or town where the homeless are less visible,  Family-to-Family will coordinate with a local outreach organization that will be happy to receive your “sn’ocks.”  If you’re interested in this option, please email us (more BEFORE you start your project, so we can make sure there’s a recipient organization near you!

Please contact us at before your event so that we can link you and your group to a local shelter where you can bring your donations.
