The Simms Foundation and I would like to say “thank you” to everyone who helped make our annual sock drive an enormous success!

Very special thanks go to:
Steph DelAqua for taking on my 100 sock challenge!
John Goodrow for sending his donation all the way from Georgia
Dr. and Mrs. Nelson Lasiter for their undying commitment to this cause.
Mercedes Benz Club of America - Las Vegas Chapter, for their continued support.
Rebecca Kirsch for her generous donation.
Kris Daniels and 102.7 The Coyote for delivering hundreds of socks to Safe Nest that our supporters collected.
The Crew at Grape Expectations for supporting us again this year, and in a big way.
Mr. Scott Pattison and the students at Victoria Fertitta Middle School
Mr. Mike Bauder and the students at Derfelt Elementary School
Ms. Courtney Bauder and the students at Bonanza High School

This year, we collected almost 10,000 pairs of NEW socks, shoes and clothing items for those in need in our Valley.

Ten organizations benefited from the generosity of folks like you. They include: SAFE House, Project 150, St. Therese Center, Poverello House, Women’s Resource Center, Salvation Army, 4 Square, Safe Nest, Elaine Wynn Elementary School, and Amazing Grace Ministries. We also helped a few individuals who were in dire need.

This sock drive has been going on since 1989, when Dawn Marie Simms began collecting socks for the needy in Las Vegas. After her passing in 1999, I took up the task of making sure people in need in our community continued to receive new socks, a basic necessity many never think of.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated!
