ALA Community Service Event

Greater Chicago Socks Drive

Donate and Network


The Greater Chicago Chapter is collecting 250 pairs of colorful socks. Chicago members can drop their socks off at the Palmer House Hilton by October 4.


One sock will be given to an attendee, the matching one to a business partner. The goal is for the attendee and the exhibitor to match the socks. Once matched, socks will be placed in the Exhibit Hall for donation.

Spread a Little Warmth

Not from Chicago? We'd like out of town attendees to still bring socks to donate. All socks will be taken to the Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, a shelter that helps the homeless.
