Socktober Collection

Join Mason’s third annual Socktober collection in honor of Alice Watts, longtime Mason employee who died in September 2016. Donations of new socks will benefit the Katherine Hanley Family Shelter.

We collected 400 pairs of socks in 2016, and increased to 1,300 pairs of socks in 2017. Help us collect 1,500 pairs in 2018!

Donations accepted through November 5.

Contact Katie Clare at with questions.

[Flyer reads:

October 3- November 5

Donate a new pair of socks throughout the month of October! Even a small act of kindness can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.

Donations will be delivered to the Katherine Hanley Family Shelter in Fairfax County in memory of Alice Watts, who dedicated more than 25 years to helping students at Mason.

Donate a new pair of socks to help someone in need!
