Virtual Enterprise will host a sock drive to benefit the homeless through Nov. 12.

Every winter, people donate a variety of clothing to different homeless centers, but they are almost always short on the number of socks they receive.

When people donate, they usually first think of jackets, hats, and other warm clothes, but socks are much more needed than people believe, as the homeless are more susceptible to frostbite and foot diseases when they do not have the proper socks.

This is why when Virtual Enterprise had to decide on a virtual-business idea, they immediately thought of doing a sock business.

Now the class wants to make a difference in Knoxville this winter. They hope to help the homeless community combat this large concern.

Not only will socks be collected here, but they are also setting up donation bins at local businesses to help support the cause.

“Personally, I’m excited to see our school get involved to collect socks for this good cause,” junior Virtual Enterprise student Tori Patton said. “I’m also very interested in how the various businesses around Knoxville will help us.”

All socks will be donated to Knoxville Area Rescue Ministries, and their goal is to collect 900 pairs. They are requesting new socks to be turned in, as the law prevents used ones from being donated.

Students and parents can bring socks to a donation bin in the West Mall until Nov. 12.
