Bennett RobinsonChiro WarmSocksDrive Flyer

DANVILLE – To help residents stay warm this winter, State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is launching a warm socks drive in partnership with Robinson Chiropractic to benefit shelters across Danville.

“Homeless service providers continue to face a long list of needs, with socks being a major sought-out item of clothing by people experiencing homelessness,” Bennett said. “With winter approaching, I’m asking folks to consider donating a pair of new socks to help our neighbors in need keep warm.”

Worn-out or ragged socks put people at serious risk of foot disease and, during the winter months, in severe danger from the cold. As a result, new socks are greatly needed by those experiencing homelessness—but they are the least donated clothing item at homeless shelters.

From Nov. 15 to Dec. 23, community members are encouraged to donate new socks for men, women and children at the collection locations below:

  • Bennett’s District Office located at 201 N. Vermilion St., Suite 323 in Danville
    •  Monday-Friday: 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
  • Robinson Chiropractic located at 3595 N. Vermilion St. in Danville
    • Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 8 a.m.-6 p.m.
    • Tuesday, Thursday: 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Robinson Chiropractic located at 111 N. State St., Suite C in Westville
    • Monday, Wednesday, Thursday: 8 a.m.-noon; 1:30-6:30 p.m.
    • Tuesday: 1:30-6 p.m.
    • Friday: 8 a.m.-noon

Collection boxes will be located outside of each office and donations will benefit Crosspoint at the Y Homeless Program, Danville Rescue Mission and Fair Hope Children’s Ministry.

For questions or additional information, contact Bennett’s office at 217-442-5252 or Robinson Chiropractic at 217-442-2273.
