Donate Socks Now For North Precinct Police Annual Sock Drive

Some of  last year's neighborhood knitted donations

The annual North Seattle Police Precinct Sock Drive is happening now and the Laurelhurst Community Club Trustees invite the neighborhood to donate through November 25th for distribution on December 7th.

Every year the neighborhoods in the North Precinct collect new socks, hats and gloves for men, women and children of all ages to distribute to family shelters and the homeless.

This year's goal is 6000 pairs of socks.  Several charities need over 100 pairs of socks each month.

Last year Laurelhurst neighbors generously donated 500 of the 5,000 socks, hats and gloves that were distributed by the
North Precinct. Some of the donations had been lovingly hand knitted.

"This year we hope to exceed our numbers from last year," Linda, one of the LCC Trustees, told us.

Donations can be dropped off in the "Sox Box" at Windermere Real Estate (5424 Sand Point Way NE) Monday through Friday from 8:30-5:30pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10-4pm.

For  evenings drop off, donations can be left in the "Sox Box"on the porch at 4723 NE 54th Street.
