United Way and Tradehome Shoes Respond to Demand for Socks for Homeless People in Dubuque.

United Way of Dubuque Area Tri-States will distribute more than 1000 pairs of socks donated by Tradehome Shoes, located at the Kennedy Mall. Through the “Trade-at-Home-Give-at-Home program, Tradehome Shoes provides socks to a charity of its choice.

Since the beginning of the year, for every pack of Century Socks sold, Tradehome Shoes set aside a pack of Century Socks for United Way.

“We are thrilled to work with Tradehome Shoes on this initiative. Because of our many connections in the community, we will get these socks onto the feet of those who need them most.” said Danielle Leibfried, President/CEO for United Way of Dubuque Area Tri-States.

Tradehome Shoes believes that “each one of us should realize the impact we can have in our communities and in touching people’s lives. As individuals, we can make a difference. As a team, we can create a tidal wave and affect the lives of countless people.”

The socks will be shared with several nonprofit providers across United Way of Dubuque Area Tri-State’s 10 county service area, including Dubuque Rescue Mission.

“Socks are extremely important to the people we serve. Many people take them for granted but when you’ve been displaced and can only carry with you a few items, the world looks very different.” said Morgan Frazer, Executive Director of Dubuque Rescue Mission.
