What is Rock It?

Providing clean, new socks help those in need to get one-step closer to health care.

The inaugural Rock It Sock It – Sock Drive will take place from Jan 1st until March 1st 2019. Goal is to receive over 2,000 pairs of donated “new” socks, which will be stuffed with needed “travel-size” toiletries to make Sock Care Kits.

Why are socks so important?

Providing clean, new socks help those in need get one-step closer to health care.

What is the Comitis Crisis Center?

The Comitis Crisis Center, Inc. began operations in 1969 with an initial mission of providing alternative assistance to youth with substance abuse problems. Comitis was the first program to provide services in this Federal region for runaway youth in 1971.

Today, Comitis offers a comprehensive program of services, from emergency housing, crisis intervention, short-term treatment, aftercare, outreach, and education and prevention services to Aurora persons ranging from infants to senior citizens. We are the resource in our community for the homeless, the near homeless and working poor.

We are part of the Aurora’s “Cold Weather Alert” program working alongside Aurora Warms the Night, and the Aurora Police Department. We provide a place to stay and a range of material resources including food and general nutritional items, diapers, bus passes, and other resources that meet basic human needs. 

“Many people tell me that socks are the most important clothing item,” says Costello. “One homeless man named Kiwi told me socks are more important than food. He said that he knows of many pantries and shelters where he can get food, but that there’s no way he can walk the streets of Toronto without socks.”
Tom Costello, founder of The Joy of Sox
recipient of Former President Bush’s Daily Point of Light Award
