Sock Saturday is an outreach program designed to provide much-needed supplies to homeless individuals in Manhattan while giving students the opportunity to receive an intimate education of homelessness. Through friendly dialogue, we encourage students to spend extra time getting to know the many individuals who often go unnoticed in the city. In groups of two or three, students move at their own pace along a designated route while handing out socks and a smile to anyone who appears in need.
On Sock Saturday, the group will meet in the GO! office, McGinley 205, at 12:00 noon. After going over procedure and safety, the group will have a brief dialogue about homelessness and the many stereotypes that we hope to break down that day. The larger group will be separated into groups of two or three and one member of that smaller team will be given a map with a designated route and a backpack full of socks. As a group, we will then take the train into Manhattan where the larger group will split off into the smaller teams. While in the city, the teams will remain in contact with each other and designate a time to meet back at Fordham. Once all teamshave arrived back on campus, therewill be a shortdebrief where students will be able to share stories and have a chance to discuss any questions that came up while on the project.
The sign up for Sock Saturday will be posted the Monday before the program. For more information, contact Dan Krug.
