About this experience

Knock Knock​,​ Give a Sock is an organization that collects the most needed​,​ but least donated article of clothing for those experiencing homelessness: socks. While many people donate clothing​,​ 9 out of every 10 people who have donated clothing have never donated a pair of socks. On top of that​,​ most organizations do not accept gently used socks​,​ but at KKGS we do! Our partners and volunteers collect socks through drives and sometimes​,​ by quite literally knocking on the doors of their colleagues​,​ classmates​,​ and neighbors. In addition to collecting socks for those in need​,​ KKGS aims to reduce the stigma associated with homelessness. Through our Meet Your Neighbors Dinners​,​ KKGS attempts to bring together those who are and are not experiencing homelessness in order to encourage discussions and ultimately dissipate the stigma. Spend an hour of your evening playing games with your neighbors at the local shelter! Please bring a pair of new socks with you to donate. Joining us on this social impact experience will help bring our neighbors living in local shelters into our communities​,​ ultimately making the world a better​,​ more compassionate place for us all.

    Experience host

    Hello, we're Knock Knock Give A Sock.

    KKGS is dedicated to humanizing homelessness one sock at a time. We build relationships with companies through hosting a sock collection in their offices. We then offer the group that collected those socks the experience of meeting their neighbors living in homeless shelters. We create a setting where socio-economic boundaries are virtually eliminated; thus we can focus and recognize the humanity in each other.
