FUSE Inglewood in conjunction with Fusicology, 8th Wonder Media Group, LA Bella Chauffeurs, Social Justice Learning Institute and The Creative House of Inglewood have teamed up for the 1st annual SOCK IT TO THE COLD sock drive to benefit the homeless and need based of Inglewood.

 

Our goal is to collect and donate of 10,000 pair of warm new socks to the Midnight Mission of Inglewood. The retail value of these socks would be in excess of $35,000 in overall financial impact.

 

Why socks?

- Rarely are new warm socks donated to missions or homeless shelters.

- The #1 requested clothing item in the Skid Row area of downtown Los Angeles, socks.

- Warm socks help reduce the level of infection and overall sickness especially during the winter cold and wet months.

 

The home of our 1st annual sock drive will be The Creative House located at 122 N. Market St. in Downtown Inglewood. Gallery hours are 10am-6pm Tuesday thru Sunday and donations are being accepted now thru March 21st, 2018. Two large donation cylinders will be placed at the front of the gallery for easy and quick drop off.

 

FUSE Inglewood is a collaborative effort of Inglewood residents, business owners, community and entertainment professionals coming together to program exciting music, soulful integrations and cultural events along with leading social impact initiatives starting with our Sock It To The Cold homeless sock drive campaign.

 

The Homelight Family Living, a program of The Midnight Mission of Inglewood, under the leadership of Ricardo Rosales highlights structure, accountability and opportunity for homeless families. Feeding, clothing and housing thousands, the Mission’s objectives fit perfectly with the purpose of our sock drive.
