Dakota Coon from Fremont in 2022 contributed to the sock drive. Socks purchased was delivered to the Fremont HUB supporting low income Fremont youth. Dakota bought extra due to his injury, only allowing him to play 1.25 games last year. NebraskaTok matched the donation.
He also supported in style with a NebraskaTok hat on.
Jake with NebraskaTok challenged players to a fundraiser in 2021. Turning Tackles and Touchdowns into Warm Toes.
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.
