Step Away from Abuse | GFWC Sock Project
After we finish our other 2 collections, we will begin to collect new socks for women and children.
Initiated by the General Federation of Women's clubs (GFWC). Women's clubs all over the country are participating in this wonderful project:
Help domestic violence survivors “Step Away From Abuse” by working with domestic violence shelters in your local community by participating in the GFWC Sock Project. Place a pair of new socks in a quart-size, clear plastic baggie. Affix a personalized label with a message of support and encouragement from your club, that reads: “As you begin your new life and Step Away from Abuse, we hope you will find comfort and warmth as you walk into your newly found freedom."
If you would like to donate new socks to our project, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watch for our drop off locations, coming in April.
