BE A HERO | BRING SOCKS

In partnership with Courage to Call, the festival will be conducting a sock drive for homeless veterans and military families in need. The average person walks four miles a day, but a homeless person walks 10 miles a day. Clean, warm socks are a true treasure. Every sock donated makes a difference to our nation’s heroes in need.
