Legal organization donates 400 pairs of socks to area homeless agencies

Representatives from the C. Edwin Moore Inn of Court, a professional organization that promotes professionalism, civility, and ethics among legal professionals, donated 400 pairs of high quality socks and mittens to local Des Moines area homeless agencies on Thursday at the Dickinson Law headquarters.

The socks, many of them made of wool or wool blends, will supplement the cotton socks normally offered by the homeless agencies to those they serve. All of the socks and mittens were purchased during “Socktoberfest,” the Fox River Woolen Mills Sock Sale that takes place each fall at the Mitchell County Fairgrounds in Osage, Iowa.

“With current estimates between 1,500 and 2,000 homeless people in the Des Moines area, this donation will help many of those people keep their feet warmer through the winter months and prevent cold weather-related foot issues,” said Jaime Yowler of Iowa Homeless Youth Shelters.  

Dick Lyford of Dickinson Law made the trip to Osage to purchase the socks. “The Socktoberfest sale is a fabulous way for us to buy quality items at great prices that in turn will benefit many homeless people,” said Lyford.

The C. Edwin Moore Inn of Court members say they plan to make a donation again next year.
