10th Annual Holiday Drive

Community Connections is now accepting donations of new socks and outerwear for our 10th annual Holiday Sock Drive.

We are seeking new, warm socks and outerwear – such as scarves, gloves, mittens, and knit caps – to distribute to those whom we serve in the days before Christmas. Monetary donations will be used to purchase those clothing items from local businesses.

Longtime staff member Kathleen Kloep originally started the Holiday Sock Drive as a way to honor a friend’s memory. Since the drive’s inception, it has grown from distributing primarily socks to include outerwear and freshly baked cookies and treats. Once all donations and purchases are in and the treats are baked, our staff and volunteers assemble care packages that are then distributed to our clients shortly before Christmas.

We provided more than 200 care packages in 2021, and with the community’s help we can provide additional packages and gifts this year. Packages go to our clients in Ketchikan, Saxman, Metlakatla, and on Prince of Wales Island.

The Holiday Sock Drive helps provide comfort to some of our most vulnerable friends and neighbors: folks who are isolated in their homes, those without family nearby, people who cannot afford winter clothes, or families with children experiencing financial hardship. An in-home visit can be incredibly meaningful for many of our seniors and adults with disabilities who don't have the opportunity to leave home often. For those struggling to cover their basic needs, a small gift of socks and a warm meal can brighten their day.

With your support, we can help ensure a warm, happy holiday season for those we serve across southern Southeast Alaska. Make a donation today online at:

Donations of new socks and outerwear for all ages can be made at our offices in Ketchikan and Craig. Office addresses are:

721 Stedman Street Ketchikan, AK 99901

1800 Craig-Klawock Highway #241 Craig, AK 99921
