Who wants your old socks?

September 19, 2011

The truth is that there are many needy people in the Los Angeles Area and elsewhere that would be happy to receive a pair of your lightly used, clean socks. According to www.onesmallsteponline.org most clothing banks receive plenty of clothing and accessory items but they receive very few socks. When needy people come looking specifcally for socks they are forced to leave empty handed due to the general public’s misconception that “no body wants your old socks”.

So if you’re considering donating to Sweaters for Solstice this year, please consider substituting or adding a few pairs of Socks for Solstice.

Regards,

Rev. Connie

Help make this a warm December for someone in need

August 20, 2011

Sweaters for Solstice ™ is a charitable function associated with the Iseum of Isis Paedusis.  As a  Goddess centered spiritual organization the Iseum recognizes our social resposibility to help those in need, regardless of their religious beliefs and thus this idea was born.

Each year, between August 1 and December 15,  we will host clothing drives to collect sweaters, gloves, hats and other winter outerware by placing collection boxes at various locations around Southern CA.  These clothing items will be distributed to homeless and battered women’s shelters during the Winter Solstice Holidays. We ask that you support our cause by donating new and lightly used winter outerwear in clean condition.

Blessed Be,

Rev. Connie
