It's all about them wool socks!

How many pairs of socks do you think are needed this winter in south county? This week we are highlighting our Wool Socks Drive! Wool Socks Drive

Wool Socks for the homeless to be distributed by the 5Cities Homeless Coalition.  Nancy Terrell is leading this project.  She is collecting warm wool socks for the homeless.  Wool socks are the best because they wick away the moisture from the feet and keep them dryer and warmer.  The cotton or athletic socks retain the moisture.  She is also collecting warm hats, gloves and scarves.  Socks can be dropped off from November 1 to December 15th at the Avila Bay Athletic Club & Spa, 6699 Bay Laurel Pl, Avila Beach, CA 93424.

They can also be dropped off at Susan McCutcheon’s house at 2342 Willett Way (Cypress Ridge), Arroyo Grande.

The 5 Cities Homeless Coalition says they can use at least 500 pairs of wool socks this winter! Matching Grant – We have a fabulous anonymous matching grant donor!  They are willing to match $5,000 in donations to meet end of the year funding needs for the holidays.  They will match donations between now and November 20th up to $5,000!  Let’s start those checks flying in to: South SLO County Womenade at 1793 Farroll Rd. Grover Beach, CA 93433.

Please help us receive this marvelous grant! We are only at about 15%!!! Remember that you can make donations in honor of someone for a special occasion or the holidays and we will send the honoree (if you send us email contact information) and the donor a customized card.  Send in a donation either by check or paypal.  On the comment line or on a sticky note if it’s a check, state that the donation is in honor of “the name of the honoree and occasion” plus add the honoree’s email address. Our next Zoom Potluck is scheduled for Sunday November 15th at 4PM. We are looking for your input what type of activities you’d like to have at the virtual potluck in addition to hearing from the advocates.  Please let us hear from you.  We are also asking for your pictures of what you have been doing during the pandemic or pictures that show your involvement in Womenade activities.  Send to
