ANTIOCH, Calif. - Oct. 29, 2021 - PRLog -- As the weather begins to cool, The Commons at Dallas Ranch spent October collecting socks and mittens to support the area homeless. Approximately 100 pairs of socks and mittens were amassed by the community, along with snacks and water. Residents assembled the goods in gift bags that employees will distribute on the streets of Antioch on Friday, October 29th.

"Socks are always in need for the homeless, especially as it gets colder," said Melanie McCants, director of sales for The Commons at Dallas Ranch. "With temperatures dipping into the 40s at night, another team member suggested we add mittens to the give-away bags."

According to McCants, the idea for the drive was born out of the community's Yoi Shigoto Gives Back program that seeks ways to impact residents, employees, the surrounding community, and hopefully the world through charitable giving and philanthropic projects.

"Research shows that those who participate in charitable giving have a greater sense of purpose and productivity," said McCants. "Yoi Shigoto Gives Back projects like this drive help residents and team members connect with the community around us."
