Hygiene in general is very difficult for Homeless People. And foot care is often times near impossible.
Beyond the comfort a Homeless Person will receive from getting a new pair of socks, clean and fresh socks will promote better foot hygiene as well as familiarity with their own feet and the condition of them.

All You Need To Know To Give Homeless People Socks
You will need fresh, clean socks, preferably new. Don't feel like you have to go "gung ho" all at once. You can simply start off with just one or two pairs of socks. You can get socks at the dollar store or department store. You can order them online. And you can give your own. The best type of socks that are the most economical are men's tube socks. I have found that Homeless Woman also prefer men's tube socks because they can layer them over other socks to help keep their feet warmer.
Giving socks to Homeless People is no different than giving anyone a gift. Just let them know that you have socks for them and they most will likely be very happy to receive them. You might place a pair or two in a bag. You can learn more about giving additional items and to create care packages on our care package page.
Homeless People are usually more readily found close cities. If you are having trouble finding Homeless People, you might contact your local Homeless Outreach Program by looking in the phone book or online. You can also contact us for any guidance you may need.
