Jet Mail Helps The Homeless With a Sock Drive


Jet Mail Helps The Homeless With a Sock Drive


Sue Robitaille, an employee at Jet Mail has always wanted to help the less fortunate in some way. While listening to the radio, she heard that socks are always in great demand at homeless shelters. Sue started the sock drive five years ago and since then, she averages about 1000 pairs of socks each year as well as hats, gloves, mittens, scarfs and coats.

For the first two years, Sue delivered all of the adult and children’s socks to the Pine Street Inn. She soon found out the children’s socks were better placed with Cradles to Crayons. Every year since then, she divides the socks up into adult and children’s sizes and delivers them to both charities that help the homeless.

As of last year, Sue’s granddaughter is now involved. Jordan was able to collect 50 pairs of socks, by starting a drive at her school. In addition, she also helps her grandmother box everything up and deliver it to the shelters.

“250,560 children under the age of 12 in Massachusetts live in low-income or homeless situations.” Cradles to Crayons

The sock drive has been extended until December 2nd, in hopes of reaching or even exceeding Sue’s goal of over 1000 pairs of socks.
