Warm socks drive VermilionDANVILLE – To help ensure folks stay warm during the cold winter months, State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is collecting socks to benefit area shelters through Friday, Jan. 15.

“Donations to shelters are down this year due to COVID-19, so Robinson Chiropractic and I have teamed up to collect socks,” Bennett said. “Now more than ever, it’s important to support each other as a community – I encourage you to donate, if you’re able.”

Worn-out or ragged socks put people at serious risk of foot disease and, during the winter months, in severe danger from the cold. As a result, new socks are greatly needed by those experiencing homelessness—but they are the least donated clothing item at homeless shelters.

Community members are encouraged to donate new socks for men, women and children at the collection locations below:

  • Sen. Scott Bennett’s District Office
    • 201 N. Vermilion St., Suite 323, Danville
      • Mon-Fri: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Robinson Chiropractic:
    • 3595 N. Vermilion St., Danville
      • Mon, Wed, Fri: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
      • Tues and Thurs: 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
    • 830 S. Dixie Hwy., Hoopeston
      • Mon-Fri: 8 to 12 p.m.; 1:30 to 6 p.m.
    • 111 N. State St., Suite C, Westville
      • Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.; 1:30 to 6 p.m.
      • Tues: 1:30 to 6 p.m.

Bennett reminds those donating to wear a mask in the building and practice social distancing. Collection boxes will be located outside of each office.

Donations will benefit Crosspoint at the Y Homeless Program, Danville Rescue Mission and Fair Hope Children’s Ministry.
