Y.P.O.W.R. member Eric Turmel of Employers Reference Source, Inc., chairperson of the 2018 donations drive, commented, "Socks are the most needed apparel for low-income and homeless individuals and families, yet they are the least collected donation items." Y.P.O.W.R.'s annual drive seeks both monetary donations and hundreds of new pairs of socks for individuals and families throughout the Greater Waterbury region.
The new socks and monetary gifts will benefit the following non-profit organizations, and the hundreds of individuals and families they generously serve, Naugatuck YMCA, Greater Waterbury YMCA, Naugatuck Youth Services, St. Vincent De Paul Mission of Waterbury, Carolyn's Place and Acts 4 Ministry, Inc.
Volunteers are needed to help sort and distribute the hundreds of donated socks to the participating non-profit organizations on Monday, April 9 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the offices of the Waterbury Regional Chamber, 83 Bank Street, 4th Floor, in Waterbury.
The mission of Y.P.O.W.R. is to energize young professionals aged 21 to 39 who are seeking to grow their careers in the Waterbury area by engaging them in positive opportunities for professional development, educational, social, and community service.
Corporate members of Y.P.O.W.R. include Bank of America, CT Community Foundation, Mattatuck Museum, and Thomaston Savings Bank.
Monetary donations can be U.S. Mailed to Y.P.O.W.R. Sock Drive, Waterbury Regional Chamber, 83 Bank Street, Waterbury, CT 06721.
