Winter Solstice Sock Drive
We have partnered with the Springfield Rescue Mission for their first ever, Winter Solstice Sock Drive on Saturday, December 21. Our park will be collecting packages of new socks to spread awareness for National Homeless Remembrance Day on the first day of winter. Guests are invited to bring a pack of NEW socks in exchange for discounted park admission. Packages must include a minimum of 8 pairs and are suggested to be warm thick socks for the winter months. In exchange for their donation, guests will receive an entry coupon for $20.19. Offer is valid one coupon, per person, per donation of a NEW package of socks on Saturday, December 21 only. All donations will remain local and benefit the Springfield Rescue Mission.
Socks are the most requested item in shelters across the country and the Holiday Capital of New England is committed to helping the cause. Many homeless people walk miles per day in order to survive, leaving their socks damp and cold. Throughout the winter months warm socks become an essential item and our goal is to collect well over 1,000 pairs of socks! Tis the season to celebrate the season of giving and we need your help to provide warm socks throughout the cold winter months!
