What is Rock It?

Providing clean, new socks help those in need to get one-step closer to health care.

Follow Us on Facebook 

The Rock It Sock It – Sock Drive will take place from January 4th until February 27th 2021. Goal is to receive 5,000 pairs of socks and needed “travel-size” toiletries to make Sock Care Kits. Sock Care Kits will be assembled at the Summit Event Center and then delivered to the Comitis Crisis Center for distribution. A virtual event will be hosted to thank all the supporters of the drive at the conclusion of the collection efforts.

 

Why are socks so important?

  • Socks provide a layer of warmth, worsened by smoking, which constricts blood vessels making toes more susceptible to damage by cold. Severe frostbite leads to amputation
  • Socks decrease friction between the shoes and the foot. Socks also help cushion the bottom of the foot. The friction leads to thickened skin. Many homeless people have a condition call polyneuropathy. They lose nerve function and cannot feel irritations of their feet. The thickened skin can then break down to an ulcer. Neuropathic ulcers usually become infected and can cause cellulitis (skin infection), deadly sepsis (blood poisoning) or deep bone infections.
  • The Journal of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners published the results of a surgery of the utilization of foot care services among homeless adults. The results showed “An overwhelming number of respondents felt that the embarrassment associated with the smell of feet and the poor condition of their shoes and socks were deterrents in using available foot care services.
