Swanstaff launch winter Socks for the Homeless Appeal
9th October 2015
Swanstaff, Kent’s Business of the year, calls for local people to “knock their socks off” with a winter charity appeal for homeless people.
The recruitment company whose head office is based in Dartford launched their “Swan Socks” appeal on Friday 9th October after being inspired by a statistic they read which revealed that socks are one of the most needed and least donated items to homeless shelters and charities.
They plan to distribute the socks collected through charities nationwide including Canterbury Homeless Outreach in Kent and have a target to collect at least 1000 pairs by the end of November.
Ellie Lewis, Head of Marketing said:
“Here at Swanstaff we are passionate about doing our bit for charity, whether that’s through fundraising, taking part in events or raising awareness of causes. When we heard that homeless charities desperately need socks we knew it was a simple way to support the excellent work they do.”
“Having a clean pair of socks is vital for someone living on the streets as it can prevent trench foot and infections as well as provide a barrier from the cold during the winter months, which can even save lives.”
