Group Description

Socks for Soldiers, Inc.
This organization is about sending hand knitted socks to our US soldiers in the Middle East. We are not interested in the politics in this war, but in showing support to our troops. When we knit a pair of socks for one soldier we are sharing part of ourselves. We ask for your assistance in this mission of love. If you cannot knit a pair of socks, we also have room for volunteers and donors to cover the cost of shipping. We have a great team effort here with dedicated knitters who share in the dream of showing support to our American sons and daughters. Our dream is to send 1 million pairs of hand knitted socks. We hope you decide to stay and join in.
