Valentine’s Day: “Sock It To Me”, serving cities from Philadelphia to San Antonio, TX is trying to institute a new national holiday: National Socks for the Homeless Day on Valentine’s Day.

So in addition to giving your loved one flowers, candy and a card on Valentine’s Day they also want you to remember the homeless by donating a 6-pack of socks directly to the homeless or to one of their local The Joy of Sox chapters.

The organization has been successful in their efforts. Last month, St Thomas the Apostle School in Philadelphia, PA conducted a major socks drive. All students in pre-K through 8th grade got involved. The students collected socks for the needy children their own age. Our Mother of Consolation School jumped on board and did the same.

So remember, nothing says Valentine’s Day better than by donating new warm socks to the homeless - National Socks for the Homeless Day on Valentine’s Day.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

In case you have forgotten,
Remember Valentine's Day,
Give cards, candy or flowers,
And celebrate it every day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
