Students, faculty and staff joined together to serve on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 16th. This Cabrini group volunteered at The Joy of Sox warehouse in Phoenixville, PA, counting socks that had been donated through recent school sock drives and banding and packaging the socks for distribution to shelters and organizations that provide direct services for men, women and children who are experiencing homelessness.
Tom Costello, Jr., the Founder of The Joy of Sox, expressed his gratitude for the ongoing collaboration of Cabrini University and The Joy of Sox.
“We have a long history with Cabrini University. Since our inception in 2010, Cabrini alumni and more recently, Cabrini students, have formed the heart of our volunteer organization. The University community has generously donated to our mission through the Give Hope, Give Love, Give Socks campaigns. We are now in our 13th year of operation and this year, we are going for our millionth pair of socks distributed to those living without adequate shelter. We remain deeply grateful for the ongoing synergy with Cabrini University and believe this is our way of continuing the legacy of Mother Cabrini.”
