A new unofficial world record and still counting! Cabrini University tonight..with time still to go..has already shattered the record for the most pairs of socks donated in 8 hours. The socks are headed to people experiencing homelessness.
Cabrini University’s students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends this hour launched the official attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most pairs of socks delivered in 8 hours.
The current record is just under 2500 pairs. Cabrini has been inspired by the nonprofit Joy of Sox to gather new pairs, mostly quality wool socks, for people experiencing homelessness. Socks are an often overlooked key to health and eventually opportunity for people who are homeless.
