Fill The Socks Box!!!

Hello GSA Members and Friends,

Our Fall sock and underwear drive has begun! 

- All "NEW" socks donated will be given to the Multi Service Center(MSC) in Long Beach.  The MSC is the main hub for homeless services in the city and will distribute all items based upon need.

- You don't need to donate socks.  We are collecting underwear and financial donations as well.

- According to the 2008 Long Beach Homeless Count there are over 3,000 homeless men, women and children who are currently living in shelters, hotel rooms and on the streets.

- The cold months are upon us and socks will help keep people's feet warm and clean.  Socks are often used as mittens by cutting a small hole for the thumb in the side.

- "The Socks Box" is located in the Geography office in LA4 room 106.

I purchased 5 pairs of socks for $4.50 from BJ Clothes on 7th street just around the corner from CSULB. 

Please spread the seed and encourage people to help.  Students are not the only ones who can help, instructors, family members and friends can assist us in filling our donation bin. 

Thank you for your help.

Geography Student Association
