Elmwood-Murdock Seniors Join NebraskaTok’s Sock Drive

All 7 of Elmwood-Murdock’s senior players will be participating in the NebraskaTok Sock Drive and they will be donating to Tabitha’s Meals on Wheels program which helps the elderly in their communities to age with dignity and without fear of going hungry. The winter months can be especially hard for them to get out of their homes, and there are a lot of issues with circulation that cause cold feet! The program will be able to distribute new socks to them as they deliver meals to them at home. We are super excited to partner with them!

Here are the players and what they have chosen to do:

Sam Clements: Total Tackles

Will Bauder: Pancakes & TFL’s

Tyson Mans: TD Receptions

Will Platt: Pancakes

Keegan Meisinger: Total Tackles

Reagan VonRentzell: Rushing TD’s

Riley Wilson: Rushing TD’s

There are two main reasons socks are among the most valuable piece of clothing to people without permanent housing. For one, feet work overtime when there’s no cozy home (and laundry room) to return to each night. The other reason is that socks and underwear aren’t often donated or, when they are, the goods can’t be sanitized and put to use.

If you put yourself in someone else’s shoes (no pun intended), you can see how clean, warm socks are a true treasure.

Many people are surprised to hear that socks are the least-donated clothing items and yet the most in-demand for needy locals. The combination seems obvious, but it doesn’t occur to most donors. That is how NebraskaTok’s Socks came about.

NebraskaTok’s goal is to allow athletes to build character and be involved with other experiences off the field or court.
