Silly Sock Saturdays is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation which plans on helping kids in hospitals by bringing joy and happiness to them in the form of silly socks with comfort items, such as toys, coloring books, and crayons, and delivered with a smile.
We do numerous activities within the community, one of which we are named after, Silly Sock Saturday. Silly Sock Saturdays are on the second Saturdays of every month, unless of a holiday around that time. Silly Sock Saturdays is an event in which we bring silly designed socks with different types of comfort items, like coloring books or toys, approved by our sponsoring hospitals, to help the kids in a time of need. This helps the kids by taking their mind onto other things, not the pain and what the operation might be happening future.
