Monday, Nov 30th SOCKember Though Dr. Keven Bowdle’s dental team in Farragut missed the national sock drive known as Socktober. they are creating their own — which they are calling SOCKember. From Monday, Nov. 30, to Friday, Dec. 18, they are collecting socks to donate to homeless neighbors at Knox Area Rescue Ministries. “Socks are always needed by our guests. Foot health is critically important, and having no socks or dirty socks can lead to foot-related health issues such as sores, ulcers and worse,” Tony Harris, director of Rescue at KARM, stated in a press release earlier this month. Because many of the people KARM serves have no access to laundry, having an ample supply of socks at KARM is crucial. “Socks are especially needed during the winter months as a way to protect our homeless neighbors from the bitter cold,” Harris said. If you would like to donate socks to this SOCKember drive, just drop off your donation at Bowdle’s office, 11232 West Point Drive in Farragut. “You don’t even have to come inside — we will have a basket on our porch by the front door,” Bowdle stated in the press release.
