Socks for Stand Down

Please Donate Socks for Stand Down

Once again this year, I am pleased to be running a drive to provide hundreds of pairs of fresh socks for the military veterans in San Diego County who are experiencing homelessness.

San Diego’s 30th annual Stand Down will take place from July 21st through 23rd. The event, sponsored by Veterans Village of San Diego, gives homeless veterans a chance to rest for several days in a welcoming environment, along with others who have shared experiences. Charitable organizations are on hand to provide comprehensive services to help participants with their various needs.

For several years now, my staff and I have helped by asking the public to donate pairs of new socks to distribute at Stand Down – because there are never enough socks to go around.

Our Socks for Stand Down drive started in June and lasts through July 10. If you’d like to donate, you can bring a new pair of socks to any of these locations:
