Johnston Public Library recently issued the following announcement.
Socktober Sock Drive
In Iowa, there are estimated to be over 2,500 people experiencing homelessness. This October, we want to show that even a small act of caring, such as donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless. Socks and underwear and the #1 needed item at local shelters.
To help fill the gap, the Johnston Public Library will be accepting donations of new socks and underwear throughout the month of October. Donations will be distributed to Central Iowa Shelter & Services in Des Moines. All sizes are needed and will be accepted.
