Support our local shelters in Alameda County by donating unused or new socks October 1 – 31, 2022. AHS Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) is leading the Soctober sock drive to support shelters and community organizations that provide services to the unhoused members of our community. Socks are the most needed, but the least donated piece of clothing.  Donations will be collected in our cafés at Alameda Hospital, Fairmont Hospital, Highland Hospital, and San Leandro Hospital beginning October 1.
