The Rock It Sock It – Sock Drive will take place from January 4th until February 27th, 2021. Our goal is to receive 5,000 pairs of socks and needed “travel-size” toiletries to make Sock Care Kits. Sock Care Kits will be assembled at the Summit Event Center and then delivered to the Comitis Crisis Center for distribution. A virtual event will be hosted to thank all the supporters of the drive at the conclusion of the collection efforts.

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, a program of Mile High Behavioral Healthcare, was founded in 1969 and provides the only emergency shelter program in Aurora-which spans Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties. Comitis has over 50 years of experience serving people experiencing homelessness and provides a safe place to stay for an average of 150 people per night through its emergency shelter and transitional housing programs. It offers a variety of programs supporting individuals and families from trauma, addiction, recovery, mental health issues and homelessness.

Comitis is 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. The shelter provides a safe place to stay with resources including food and general nutritional items, diapers, bus passes, case management, clothing 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
