Socksgiving Mitscoots

It’s Socksgiving Time!

Give Thanks. Give Cheer. Give Socks.

We began this week with 4,320 donation socks being delivered to our building. It all started when a horn honked signaling a giant semi-truck driving up our packed street. Tim, and two loyal employees, Ellis and Clifton, helped unload 36 boxes.

It was already a busy day with our Kickstarter campaign starting, but it got a little busier around the office with all the hustle of new gear! As a midday workout, a few of us moved boxes upstairs to our conference room and hallway area that are filled to the max.

The delivery of these socks marks the beginning of our holiday season and we are excited about the GIVING season! That’s right. It’s Socksgiving time.

On Saturday, November 5th from 1-4pm we will make 1000 care canisters to be distributed to people in need throughout the Austin community for Thanksgiving. It’ll be a lot of fun with snacks, games, music and more. We would love to serve alongside our friends and neighbors while enjoying a community of people who want to give and share this season.  Bring your family, your friends, your youth group, your co-workers, or just yourself.

You can help us by bringing items to fill the canisters.  Any small toiletry items you might have, chapstick, small hand sanitizers, protein bars, raisins, and breakfast bars would be a great addition.

You won’t leave empty handed either. We invite you to take home care canisters so you can give them out whenever you might encounter someone in need. You’ll also be able to learn how you can get involved in serving the Austin community during the holidays through our Giving Partners and through special holiday events.

We’ll also have other great companies and organizations joining us:

  • Friends and Allies Brewing
  • Love Puppies Brownies
  • Tiff’s Treats
  • Little Helping Hands
  • Mission Accomplished
  • Help Portrait
  • Mobile Loaves and Fishes
  • Caritas of Austin

And a big shout to Hilton Garden Inn who is not only donating hotel toiletry items for the canisters, but also collecting food items over the next 2 weeks to donate to Socksgiving!

We hope to see you there to give thanks to one another and to give much needed gear and goodies to people in need throughout the Austin community!

Give Thanks. Give Cheer. Give Socks.
