CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY. – “Sock It To the Homeless, Warm Feet From Warm Hearts” is a new campaign created by the Carver School of Social Work for this upcoming winter season.
The Louisville Education Center is asking for help from the entire student body and staff by collecting donations of new socks to put on the feet of the homeless in Louisville. The socks can be one pair or one pack – the amount doesn’t matter as long as the items are new. They will also be accepting hats, gloves, and scarves as the students become more aware of the extra need in Louisville.
There will be decorative boxes at the entrance of each building to deposit donations. At the end of the semester, the Carver School of Social Work will take the boxes to Wayside Christian Mission so that there will plenty of supplies as they prepare for winter.
“The Louisville Social Work students wanted to bring awareness to everyone, reminding others that everybody does not have loved ones and friends that can lend a helping hand. The students expressed a concern that they knew during this time of year these items are hard to come by for the homeless and they wanted to do something to help,” Renee Sartin, Campbellsville University social work professor, said.
Campbellsville University is a widely acclaimed Kentucky-based Christian university with more than 3,500 students offering over 80 programs of study including 24 master’s degrees, seven postgraduate areas and eight pre-professional programs.
