Do you have socks with no mates? Hats that don’t perch on heads? Purses replaced by a trendier model? Clothing your children have outgrown? Linens for beds you no longer own?

We suggest celebrating Lost Sock Memorial Day (May 9th) by donating your partner-less socks, along with other clean, usable women’s, children’s or men’s clothing and usable household items to Seamless Moves’ 3rd Annual Lost Sock Day Clothing Drive to benefit people of all abilities at Northwest Center. On Lost Sock Day, volunteers will play matchmaker and pair up as many donated socks as possible, so that they may fulfill their calling to warm chilly toes.

As you spring-clean your closets and dresser drawers over the next couple of weeks, keep a bag handy for items you no longer use. Then, take your donation to one of the donation sites listed below by May 7th, or contact Seamless Moves for pickup at 425-746-1334.
