What is SOCKtember? We are so glad you asked! September is the month we dedicate to collecting NEW SOCKS that we will donate to local charities in our community. Socks are one of the most high-demand items that are needed for people of all ages. Our Team will be competing with other teams throughout the world (yes, there are other countries competing!) to try and collect the MOST new socks for charity. This Annual Sock Raising Competition started in 2020. We joined Jon Isaacson's Team in 2021 & 2022.
This year we started our own Team: The SOCK-et Wrenches!
Who are The SOCK-et Wrenches? Our Team is made up of 10 Auto Repair Shops across the United States! How do we know each other? We met through ATI -- the Automotive Training Institute. Our group meets on a monthly basis to collaborate, learn, and grow together. This year we decided to team-up to collect socks together, across the country. At the end of the month, each of us will donate the socks that we collect within our own local community.
Let me introduce you to some of our friends: A&H Automotive in Delray Beach, FL; Automotive Blessings in Kennesaw, GA; Buddy Isles in Littleton, NC; 59 Auto Repair in Plainfield, IL; Graham Auto Repair in Graham, WA & Yelm, WA; Ray & Dana's Inman Auto Care in Colonia, NJ; Mad Hatter Auto Repair in Omaha NE & Council Bluffs, IA; Rick's Auto Service in Mishawaka, IN; Ryan's Servicenter in Lanoka Harbor, NJ; and V&F Auto Inc. in Agawam, MA.
Drop off your NEW SOCK donations in September at Graham Auto Repair! We will be accepting sock donations at both of our locations: Graham, WA and Yelm, WA. You can also order socks online and send them to our shop. We have created an Amazon Wishlist to make it super simple. But feel free to order any socks that fit your budget!
We will also accept $$$ donations for socks at both of our shops. Tell your Service Advisor and your donation can be added to your invoice. At the end of the month our Team will use the $$$ to purchase NEW SOCKS & add them to our SOCK PILE! We can't wait to see how many socks we get this year. Check out our social media for updates throughout the month.
