Sox for 60 World Record Challenge

Posted on 2/7/2017 9:44:00 AM

Donate new socks to provide warm socks to the homeless and help us break a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for Cabrini’s 60th Anniversary. 

CAUSE: Support for The Joy of Sox, a nonprofit organization that provides socks for people who are experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia and beyond. Men’s wool socks are preferred to support the greatest need.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Bring newly purchased socks for donation during the Sox for 60 event.

DATE: Wednesday, Feb. 15
TIME: Noon–8pm
LOCATION: Grace Hall

HOW TO PURCHASE SOCKS: You can support the Cabrini Fund and The Joy of Sox by purchasing socks from the Alumni Office. For $5, purchase two pairs of men’s wool socks, with $2 going toward the Cabrini Fund, adding you to the list of donors participating in the 1,957 Donor Challenge.

Socks will be sold in the Alumni Office and the SEaL office Monday—Friday during normal business hours beginning Feb. 6. On Feb. 9, the 60th Anniversary committee will be going department to department to sell socks.

There will also be Sock Shops set up in Founder’s Hall Lobby and the Pavilion Feb. 6–14 from 10am to 2pm.

COMPETITIONS: As an added incentive, undergraduate class years with the highest amount of donors via the Alumni Office will receive a free lunch in the Mansion. Faculty and staff will also compete, with participants from the group with the highest amount of donors via the Alumni Office also receiving a free lunch in the Mansion on Feb. 24.

RECORD: The current record for the Largest Sock Drive in 8 Hours—Single Location is 2,459 pairs of socks. We can beat it and claim the record as Cabrini University!
