Thanks to a generous soul, there are dozens of people across the nation getting socks for Christmas—but they couldn’t be happier about it.
Elle Gianelli of Stockton California has been making colored socks with silly designs on them for years, sending them to seniors in nursing and care homes to brighten up their day.
It all started from the closer-than-close friendship she has with her grandmother, which instilled the value of spending time with the elders.
The high school junior started the project Socks 4 Seniors all the way back in the 7th grade, and has so far spruced up 92 care homes in 48 states, making a few pen-pals along the way.
But as Christmas approaches, she’s doubling down on her hobby to send boxes of silly socks to seniors in all 50 states in time for the big day.
“I know they have Toys for Tots and things for kids you know and you always seem to forget about seniors,” Gianelli told CBS. “Maybe they don’t have family or maybe they live super far away and they’re only getting like a postcard.”
To ensure that these seniors’ toes and hearts remain warm this holiday season, Gianelli is hoping to raise $10,000 through a GoFuneMe for a big sock drive. She’s so far received 95% of her total in donations with 19 days to go.
