Sock It to Homelessness

  • Solar Arts 711 Northeast 15th Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55413 United States (map)

Greater Twin Cities United Way Arise Project presents Sock It to Homelessness: a night of networking with a purpose.

In the last 4 years, Mike Augustyniak has raised over $10,000 for Arise Project by participating in GiveOUT Day, a national day of giving to LGBTQ causes.  He will be on-hand to speak about his experience with the Arise Project (around 5:30 pm), and why it's mission is so vital to the community.  

You will also hear inspirational stories, learn more about LGBTQ youth homelessness from our agency partners, and provide help on the spot by participating in a volunteer activity that will benefit our most vulnerable youth.

Light appetizers and cash bar will be available. Bring your coworkers, family and friends to celebrate the collective power of human kindness.

Warm socks and undergarments are a key to survival during the winter. Please bring one or more necessary new items for homeless youth to the event, one of our local drop off locations (listed below) or donate online.

Items needed include: 
Thick socks | Underwear | Sports bras | Leggings | White t-shirts & tank tops | Long underwear
