Share the Warmth Sock Tree
Thanksgiving through New Years
Bring your new socks to the Library and help decorate our tree for Central Iowa Shelter & Services (CISS).
DID YOU KNOW: When CISS is fully stocked with socks in their clothing closet they can go through 400 pairs of socks a week! Sadly, they rarely have enough socks to hand out each week. We can help change that with our sock tree! We will decorate with as many socks as we can and donate them to CISS. *Adult winter sizes are preferred, but any socks will make this a good New Year for the less fortunate in our area.
Since 1992, CISS’s mission has been to provide free shelter and meals to homeless adults regardless of physical or emotional conditions, and to facilitate their move toward self-sufficiency. CISS continues to serve as the largest emergency sheltering facility in the state of Iowa, currently serving 50% of Central Iowa’s homeless citizens.
