Community Project


In communities across America, the homeless live their days on the streets. As a society, we have helped countless homeless through donations of clothing and food. Yet, one article of clothing is often missed in donation piles and desperately needed by this group.
SOCKS. Why socks?

•People very rarely donate new socks to the homeless.

•Since socks are worn almost all of the time, they can be worn and frayed from the wear and tear. Therefore, the number one needed clothing article is new socks from medical issues like bunions and hammertoes to infectious diseases like athlete’s foot and fungus, old socks only contribute to increasing damage to feet.

EmpowHER Leadership Academy for Girls determined that there was a need in our community and jumped into action with Project Sock ‘Em. The Academy donated nearly 2,400 pairs socks to the Homeless Coalition Palm Beach County!
