Help a

Homeless Person

By Donating Socks Today !

Winter 2020 Target :
Pairs of Socks

THE VALUE OF A PAIR OF SOCKS IS WAY MORE THAN THE PRICE

Homeless people struggle to find clean dry socks to wear. As a result they can develop both trench foot and warm water immersion foot.  A homeless person with a history of this is 8 times more likely to die in the next 5 years compared to a person who is not homeless.

YOU CAN HELP BY:

Donating socks – preferably new adult socks in natural fibres (cotton or wool) . Donated socks can be left with Homeless Healthcare at 8 Cambridge St,
West Leederville or collected by Rotary.

OR

Donating money to
socksinthecity.com.au

$5 will buy two pairs
of socks

THE BEST TREATMENT IS PREVENTION

Once trench foot or warm water immersion foot has developed healing occurs only when the feet are cleaned, dried and exposed to air for weeks. The best treatment is prevention and the best prevention is to wear clean dry socks.

go to Homeless Healthcare
