Social Action

A PAIR OF SOCKS CAN SAVE A LIFE 

Using the Southwest Border Sock Drive as a model, The Unitarian-Universalist Youth Social Justice Project is committed to a campaign to collects sock for people without papers who are unable to bring anything as they make the journey into America.  Many migrants who suffer unfair lives of poverty and oppression in their home countries have no choice but to risk crossing perilous deserts for a chance at a new life of hope in the United States.  Untreated blisters can be fatal when traveling distances of hundreds of miles, so when migrants are asked what one item would be most essential to have, it’s no surprise that the answer is commonly a pair of socks.  Although the southwest border is not a familiar part of the country to people of the Midwest, compassion for those less fortunate than ourselves knows no boundaries.  The UU Youth Social Justice Project offers you an opportunity to help make a tangible difference.  Please help us get as many socks as possible to the people who need them.  Our sock drive collection bin is available outside of the front entrance of the church or you can mail your monetary donation to Bismarck UU Church, PO Box 297, 818 E Dived Ave, Bismarck, ND 58502-0297. Thanks.

HOW YOU CAN HELP    

Together as a community, we can:

· Collect donations of new socks through any partnering organization. 

· Collect monetary donations that go toward the purchase of new socks. 

· Use our time to tell another friend, family member, or interested person about the cause.

· Help incorporate more organizations to broaden the campaign.   

"There are two ways to help a child who had scraped their knee. You can teach the child ways  to prevent the injury in the future, and you can offer a bandage. Both solutions are invaluable."  ­Nathan Watts
