Sock Drive to Break Guinness World Record
On Feb. 15, noon–8pm, the Cabrini community will be challenged to break a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ title for the Largest Sock Drive in 8 Hours—Single Location. Cabrini will partner with The Joy of Sox to deliver the socks to people who are homeless.
Members of the Cabrini community can support the Cabrini Annual Fund and The Joy of Sox by purchasing socks from the Alumni Office (for $5, you can purchase two pairs of men’s wool socks, with $2 going toward the Annual Fund, adding you to the list of donors participating in the 1,957 Donor Challenge.)
