Keller Williams Bothell Sock Drive 2017
This is the 6th year that Keller Williams Bothell has been doing the sock drive. Organized by Christi Samaniego, Listing Coordinator at Pickett Street Properties
Keller Williams Bothell, WA and Pickett Street Properties are joining forces to help Christi gather 5,000 pairs of socks for the homeless of Seattle this 2017 winter season! JOIN US!
There was a time in Christi’s life when she experienced homelessness. She always promised herself that when she got to the point in life where she could give back, she would. In 2012, the sock drive was born and she collected 280 pairs of socks.
The mission is to start collecting socks around mid September through December 22nd. She prepares packages of socks in gallon size zip lock bags along with hand warmers and hits the streets on Christmas morning, to deliver to the homeless in Seattle neighborhoods. With the power of the Keller Williams Bothell office our BIG goal this year is to collect 5,000 pairs of socks! The most socks Christi has EVER collected is 841- our plan is to blow that number out of the water this year.
