BUCS COMMUNITY SERVICE CLUB
Socks are needed for the homeless in the winter, but they’re one of the least commonly donated items. Help the BUCS Community Service Club by donating a spare pair of socks for our SOCTOBER event at Bumpus
All you need to do to participate is get your hands on a pair of socks (used is perfectly fine, as long as they’re clean and without holes!) and deposit them in the bin on your hall. Just about everyone has a spare pair laying around, and every sock counts!
