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:
- Granola bars
- Fruit bars
- Dried fruit
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org) BEFORE you start your project, so we can make sure there’s a recipient organization near you!
Please contact us at email@example.com before your event so that we can link you and your group to a local shelter where you can bring your donations.
