Togetherhood Supports Neighbors in Norwalk

Our Togetherhood Committee, a signature program for social responsibility at Ys across the country, wrapped up its annual Shoe & Sock Drive by distributing over 400 pairs of men’s, women’s and children’s shoes on Saturday, October 1 at the Open Door Shelter in Norwalk, CT.

The Committee was able to collect all the donated items from community members, and received support from local businesses Athletic Shoe Factory ( and New Balance New Canaan ( The volunteers sorted through the donations and assisted residents of Open Door shelter in selecting suitable footwear. The day was filled with many smiles!
