Every year, the Realtors Association of Lincoln coordinates a sock drive to benefit People’s City Mission (pcmlincoln.org) and provide those in need in our community with warm socks. In 2023, they surpassed their goal and collected an unprecedented 44,500 PAIRS OF SOCKS! This year they met their goal of 24,000 pairs in 2024 within the first week of the drive. With 36 real estate businesses and banks participating, as well as a number of schools and nonprofits, the response has been overwhelming.

Socks are the number one most requested item by the homeless. Clean, warm socks are essential to good foot health and overall health, so these socks are literally a lifesaver.

Even though the drive has finished, it’s not too late to give. Since new guests are always coming to the Mission, they need socks all year long. You can donate new or gently used socks to their Help Center at 6800 P St., or purchase socks from their Amazon Wish List at the top of their homepage at pcmlincoln.org.

People’s City Mission is incredibly grateful to Realtor’s Association of Lincoln! To view the results of the drive, go to lincolnrealtors.com/ral-sock-drive.

As Lincoln’s homeless shelter, People’s City Mission’s work is more than 97% funded by community donations. For more information or to donate, visit pcmlincoln.org.
