Join us in helping our local community! 

Consider bringing:

NEW SOCKS (Milwaukee Brewers’ charity)

Non-perishable food donations (Feeding America)

Socks are the most requested item in shelters across the country. Many homeless people walk miles per day in order to survive, leaving their socks threadbare and damp. Make sure to donate clean, newly purchased socks for both adults and children. A few dollars out of your pocket could mean the world to someone with cold feet.

Every donation has a chance to win a Gift card!!!

Questions? Reach out to Jeanette Oakeshott at joakeshott@crgglobal.com

If you don’t have time to buy socks, please let Jeanette Oakeshott know – she is glad to purchase on your behalf.


Thank you to our generous Sponsors!

Please contact Christopher Bloedel (cbloedel@air-inc.com), Sponsorship Chair, with any questions.
