Sera Sock Drive – Feb 1st thru 25th

Our annual Sera Sock Drive in memory of Sera Day Coryell runs from February 1st thru February 25th. Socks are the most sought-after item for homeless and needy children. Our goal is to collect colorful, whimsical, and fun socks which will help fill a very basic need and help protect and warm the feet of needy children.

Please consider dropping socks off at Whiz Kids Toys! or send the socks to Rita’s Rainbows, 5355 Davenport Creek Road, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401. If you would like to send a monetary donation, we will be happy to purchase socks. We thank you for your consideration and support.

We are happy to announce Mission College Prep High School and Templeton Independent Study High School are community partners in our sock drive. Also, our Sera Sock Drive project is registered through Points of Light (for more information visit:https://www.pointsoflight.org/get-involved/)
