Each year, we hold a Holiday Sock Drive to collect warm outerwear for children, adults with disabilities, and seniors in Ketchikan and on Prince of Wales Island.
2020 Update: We are not having baskets at local businesses this year. However, we will still be making deliveries to seniors, adults with disabilities, and children. To support us this year, please donate online. Thank you!!
We provide warm socks and winter outerwear to families and individuals in need during the holiday season. Many of them receive services from Community Connections. First we collect donations of socks, outerwear, and cash from the community. We organize all the donations, separate them into individual gift boxes (customized for each recipient) and then deliver the boxes to families in need.
You can help make the holidays brighter for over a hundred individuals and families in our community.
We make deliveries to folks who may not have family to visit them during the holidays. Sometimes one of our visits makes all the difference.
Each donation goes to a disadvantaged individual in our southern southeast Alaska community. With your support we hope to do even better this year and provide a comfortable holiday to everyone in the Ketchikan and Prince of Wales area!
