Help Us Raise OVER 10,000 Pairs Of NEW Socks For Local Pierce County Charities

JOIN ARES Restoration as we have some FUN and do some GOOD raising NEW socks for local Pierce County charities. Our team, and many local Puyallup, Graham, and Tacoma based companies are participating in the 3rd Annual DYOJO Podcast #SOCKTemer NEW Sock Raising Competition.

Last year our local team raised over 8,500 pairs of NEW socks and donated to worthy charities including

  • Tacoma Rescue Mission

  • Bethel School Districts Care Closet

  • New Hope Resource Center

  • Each team donated socks to local charities that they selected in their markets

This event started in 2020, with four local teams in Washington State raising over 5,500 pairs of NEW socks. In 2021 SOCKTember grew to 39 teams in 2 countries raising over 66,000 pairs of NEW socks. You can read more about this event in the write up published with C&R Magazine. Our event goal for 2022 is to raise over 100,000 pairs of NEW socks for local charities in the United States, Canada, and beyond!

THIS YEAR we need your help, we “lost” this competition by 4 PAIRS OF SOCKS and would like to dethrone the back-to-back champions, the Sisters for Socks out of Seattle, WA. Everyone in Pierce County can identify with the desire to not be shown up by a team from up North. We know that if The Best DANG Sock-Raising Team in Pierce County is going to win in 2022, we will need to raise AT LEAST 10,000 pairs of NEW socks.
