Drinking Liberally Hosts “Sock It to Homelessness”

In a fitting follow up to Bob Plain’s five part series  “Homeless Like Me,”  Drinking Liberally Providence will showcase the important work of the RI Coalition for the Homeless tomorrow night, Wednesday November 28 from 7pm – 9pm at Wild Colonial Tavern.  Participants are encouraged to bring new pairs or packages of socks to donate to the Coalition to help their clients as we head into the harsh winter months.

2012 was a powerful and important year for the RI Coalition for the Homeless because of the landmark passage of the Homeless Bill of Rights, the first bill in the nation to prohibit discrimination of individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

Come learn more about the Coalition’s tireless work to end homelessness in Rhode Island at our next DL and help out the homeless by donating pairs of socks or making cash or check donations to help those most in need as we head into the winter months. Donations may also be made online at www.rihomeless.org.

Drinking Liberally organizers also encourage participants to not only bring sock donations but to wear their own liberal statement socks with loads of flair. There may even be a prize for most creative sock.  Let us know you’re coming by joining our Facebook event.
