Help create sock kits for the fall season to provide a new, dry pair of socks and other essentials to our homeless friends, and learn simple ways to engage the homeless in your community. Participants will be asked to bring 2 items for the kits, and everything else is provided with your class fee.
You may either leave your sock kit and ScrapsKC will distribute them to the homeless in downtown KCMO, or we encourage anyone who is comfortable to take their kit with them and hand it out themself. Dry socks are crucial when you live outside, and other essentials included can prevent serious health risks. We’ll also repurpose plastic grocery bags for weaving and crocheting into mats for the homeless.
Each participant is asked to bring 1 travel size hand sanitizer, and 1 travel size tissue pack. Unvaccinated participants will be encouraged to wear a mask in accordance with KCMO ordinances, and hand sanitizer will be readily available in all areas of the store.
