Sock Donations Needed to Help the Homeless in Tuscaloosa, Alabama
The GLOW-UP Leadership wants those that are experiencing homelessness to stay warm during the winter months. The organization is hosting “Sock Drive” to assist the homeless in West Alabama.
GLOW-UP was birthed in May 2021 by Marshae Madison-Pelt and her passion to “motivate and inspire others by focusing on youth development and community engagement.” Her mission is to educate and empower others to enhance their personal growth.
Pelt said she “desires to help women and the youth explore their emotions, develop self-awareness, boost self-esteem and build self-appreciation.” The SOCK DRIVE was initiated after a cold winter’s day. GLOW-UP believes that socks are a great “way to assist the students and families of local Homeless Shelters of West Alabama.” Also, this community service coincides with Dr. King’s Day of Service.
The donation drive will start on Monday, January 10, 2022, and runs through Saturday, January 15, 2022. The drop-off location will be at Lanier Automotive located at 308 Skyland Blvd, Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35405. GLOW-UP is accepting new or gently used men, women, and children socks.
