Socks for Sandy: Helping Sandy's Victims

Our neighborhood survived Hurricane Sandy. But that's not what this post is about.Instead, I'd like to focus on those people who survived with only the clothes on their backs. Literally.
Just down the road from our little neighborhood of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, the need is great. Many homes are gone, flooded, wiped out, total losses.
One of my sis-in-laws went to volunteer at the local Hurricane Shelter set up at the middle school. She spread the word about what items people needed, including socks. I went over there that same night with clothes and socks to donate.
I couldn't get the socks thing out of my head. People needed socks. People were walking around barefoot. But it was more than that, this sort-of obsession about socks. Putting socks on cold feet signifies warmth and comfort - a small bit of goodness during what will be a long and difficult road. It bothered me all night. And thus, Socks for Sandy was born.

    I was naive in thinking we were all set... The needs are even greater than I fully realized.

    This is pretty misleading since it's from 4 years ago. What gives?
