THE NCBJ SOCKS PROJECT: The NCBJ Public Outreach Committee Needs SOCKS!

One of the NCBJ Public Outreach Committee’s most important projects in 2019 will be completed at the NCBJ Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.  The Committee will be helping Washington, D.C. homeless shelters by providing personal item kits to the shelters.  The kits will be assembled during the Conference and delivered to the shelters by the Committee.  Our goal is assemble 300 kits and to have NCBJ members and Conference attendees participate in assembling the kits.  One thing we have learned over the last few months is that SOCKS are always needed at shelters.  We will be collecting all the SOCKS you can bring to the “Welcome to DC Reception” on October 30th at 5:30 p.m.  Bring your SOCKS when you check in to receive your badge for entry into the Reception.  New and gently used adult, children, and baby socks would be greatly appreciated.  PLEASE REMEMBER TO THROW A PAIR OR TWO OF SOCKS (OR TEN) INTO YOUR SUITCASE BEFORE HEADING TO WASHINGTON.  THANK YOU!!
