Sock Gathering Project

October 30, 2010 to November 27, 2010



This November, we are transforming our Window Project into a sock-gathering site, gathering deeply-needed socks for seasonal workers and other people who need warm feet. Help us out by donating clean, matched or unmatched, new or old socks. So many of us have extra socks that we don’t know what to do with, whether it’s an old pair or some random single sock hanging out by the dryer.

The socks will be donated to the Center for Workers and to VOZ (Worker’s Rights Education Project), their sponsor organization. Chelsea Mosher of Sign Wizards will design a sign for the project.

You can drop off socks at PDX Contemporary Art, and at these additional drop-off spots:
- Publication Studio, 717 SW Ankeny Street
- Mabel & Zora, 748 NW 11th Street

Dates for donations at PDX: Tuesday Oct. 26th - Saturday Nov. 27th
