PLEASE do not just host a sock drive without completing the contact form. All hospitals have a set criteria that must be followed in order for the donation to be given to patients. Hospitals often require specific gender and sizes based on the needs of the hospital receiving the donation. Completing the contact form allows all this information to be ready when your sock drive is completed. S.O.C.K.S., Inc. is also a 501(c) 3 organization so some donors might need a tax receipt for their donation and this is not possible if S.O.C.K.S., Inc. is not aware of the sock drive.. We also include photo release forms so any pictures from your event can be used on our website.
We also need this information so we can include stickers, brochures, business cards, and when possible handmade cards for the patients. All of these items are beneficial to the patient and hospital who receive our donations.
If you wish for your donation to go to the closest Children's Miracle Network Hospital (http://childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/Hospital/Search) in your area let us know. We do have certain hospitals that we ship to on a regular bases already.
Do you have a special hospital or cancer treatment center dear to your heart. Again we ask that you please contact us first, so we can find out what the hospital requires, as different hospitals have different requirements. Thanks!!
The great thing about shipping socks is they pack nicely, they do not break so just a box large enough to hold everything securely closed with packing tape, the address label securely attached to the outside of the box, a trip to your post office and soon the donation will "PUT A SMILE ON THE FACE OF A CANCER PATIENT, one pair at a time.". USPS have flat rate shipping boxes that are free with postage based on the box size not the weight and we find are easy to use. Just pick one up at your Post Office.
Packing is not your thing, okay UPS Stores, Fedex Stores, Pack N Ship Stores and I am sure there are several types of these stores in your area that will pack and ship your socks for you.
