I really don’t like being cold; especially my feet. Cold feet are the worst. But I’m really fortunate in that worrying about being cold is not something I have to do. I am guessing that if you are reading this at your computer or on your mobile phone, cold feet are not one of your primary worries either.

We are the fortunate of this region; there are many others who do not share in that fortune. On any given night in Sacramento, according to the most recent street count census of homeless people, more than 2,500 men, women and children are without a permanent place to sleep in our community. Homeless shelters seem to fill up fast this time of year, and as much as we try, we don’t have enough emergency shelters to fill the need. So as winter approaches, we find a lot of folks sleeping outside and in need of additional basics, like socks.

So here’s where you enter the picture…

Uptown Studios is once again taking on the challenge of collecting and donating 5,000 pairs of socks to Loaves & Fishes by Friday, December 19th, 2014.
