Clothing forms a large part of donations and while they definitely help provide warmth, socks are rarely included in these donations. Members of the homeless population spend most of their time walking from place to place, frequently with inadequate socks and poorly fitting shoes. Health conditions like diabetes, prevalent in the homeless population, can further complicate the danger of poor foot care.
Sagitec recognized this need and the project team working at California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) conducted a successful sock drive. The team of 14 collected 168 pairs of men’s, women’s, and children’s socks for people in Sacramento experiencing homelessness. These will be donated to the ‘Next Move’ organization to distribute to the 500 people they serve on average every day.
Sagitec Team Celebrating after a Successful Sock Drive - 168 Pairs Collected!
See a need...Fill a need is the motto that keeps Sagitec and the Sagitec team motivated to keep providing for social causes throughout the year. Last year, Sagitec along with Aid India, donated generously to the millions displaced by the Chennai floods in India. We also helped West Virginia recover from record floods.
These community efforts are in line with Sagitec’s core values to be bigger than ourselves and that we are more than just our work. We challenge ourselves to do more and be more than expected and make positive contributions to the many communities in which we live and work.
