The Peoria Ward Young Women of the Aurora Stake organized a sock drive for the homeless in their community. They collected and donated about 150 pairs of socks for men, women, and children to Aurora Warms The Night. The organization assists the homeless year-round with cold and warm weather services and also meals, warm clothing, hygiene items, transportation to shelter, laundry vouchers, bus passes, a shower trailer, and advocacy.
The young women collected the sock donations from members of their ward and gave them to Aurora Warms The Night as the organization was feeding the homeless and running a shower trailer at Saint Mark Lutheran Church. The donations were very appreciated and the young women expressed gratitude that they could provide service to the homeless members of their community.
