Having a fresh pair of socks to change into isn’t just a little luxury, it’s essential to health and well-being. That’s easy to forget when you own a whole drawer full of them, but if you’re living on the street or in a car, clean socks are far from guaranteed. Simple problems like a blister can turn into dangerous wounds within days, and fungal infections are a constant threat for people using communal showers, especially when they cannot even air their feet out without worrying about their shoes or boots being stolen. Madison Sock Exchange seeks to establish a supply of clean, dry socks for agencies serving homeless individuals in the Madison area so that no one is forced to choose between warm toes and healthy toes!
