At St. Nicholas, we wish to assist and care for our less fortunate sisters and brothers by supplying clean (preferably new) socks. These socks will be shared with the local PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) sites throughout the Village. Socks will be collected throughout the months of November and December in the gathering space at church. Your generosity will aid our new friends and will keep them blessedly warmer and more comfortable.

Several years ago now at St Nicholas, a beloved parishioner named Carmen McCall passed away. She was famous for her colorful socks, and so every year at this time I like to re-use this photo of her “Lovely and Amazing” socks to illustrate our annual drive to collect warm socks for those who need them.
