St. Patrick’s Day Sock donations for Deployed Military & veterans!
January 23, 2024
St. Patrick’s Day is a vibrant celebration that originated in honor of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Over time, it has evolved into a global festival known for its lively parades, green-themed festivities, and cultural significance. This annual commemoration observed on March 17th, holds deep historical roots intertwined with religious, cultural, and social elements.
As St. Patrick’s Day approaches, the air fills with excitement, celebration, and a vibrant sea of green. It’s a time when people come together to revel in the spirit of Irish culture. However, amidst the festivities, there’s an opportunity to spread joy and support a cause close to our hearts: supporting Deployed Military personnel and Veterans. St. Patrick’s Day falls within our Warm Feet for Warriors collection Campaign. Let’s support our Veterans and Military all while preparing them for the holiday to avoid getting pinched!
Why Socks Matter: A Symbol of Support
Socks might seem like a simple item, but for deployed Military members and Veterans, they can be a comfort, a reminder of home, and a practical necessity. Green socks specifically in this case can offer a touch of warmth and a sense of connection to the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations happening back home. We believe that collective action creates immense impact. The success of this initiative depends on the generosity and support of our community.
Soldiers’ Angels accept socks at any time in the year, but to count towards our Warm Feet for Warriors goal of collecting 75,000 pairs of socks for Service Members and Veterans, we must receive socks between these dates:
February 1 – March 31
St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17th this year. So if you’re planning to send festive green socks, send your sock donation with enough time to get it out to our Service Members for the holiday. Below are three options that can be ordered through Amazon.com. Please ship all sock donations to:
Here are some options from Amazon, but any green socks or any socks in general will do! Click the image to shop now!
If you have socks from another website, or have purchased socks physically, you can still donate them as long as they are shipped to the address listed above.
If you don’t think your donation will make it in time for St. Patrick’s Day but still want to donate, click this link to go to our Amazon Gift Registry to donate another pair of socks. They don’t have to be green or for St. Patrick’s Day! Any color socks will do! Our Veterans and Service Members will be just as grateful regardless.
