Crozer-Keystone Health System Collects Socks for The Joy of Sox

 Upland,Pa. – Crozer-Keystone Health System recently collected around 500 pairs of socks for The Joy of Sox, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit public charity whose mission is to provide socks for the homeless. All five hospitals participated in the drive by placing boxes around the hospitals and asking people to donate new socks.

The Joy of Sox raises funds to buy socks, collects new socks and distributes socks to the homeless. All of the organization’s efforts help to raise community awareness about homelessness. The organization was founded by a podiatrist at a local soup kitchen, who noted that many homeless people have foot problems and these problems tend to happen because they don’t have decent socks.

“We are extremely grateful for the support that Crozer-Keystone has given us by having a sock drive at all 5 hospitals. These socks will go a long way and keep a lot of people warm this winter,” says Tom Costello, chief sock person at “The Joy of Sox.”
