Ridge Area Arc

Our Show Us Your Socks Challenge is in full swing! Join in on the fun! #RAArc #SockChallenge

At Ridge Area Arc we understand that individuality is the spice of life and even the most conservative dressers can get a little crazy on their feet. That is why we are hosting our Show Us Your Socks Showdown to raise awareness for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. During the month of November we are asking business employees to donate a dollar (more is okay too) and wear their favorite pair of crazy socks; ones that truly fit their personality.
Ridge Area Arc employees will be traveling around town looking for the craziest socks out there and collect monies raised. We will be splashing you and your company all over our social media platforms so everyone will know that you support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. You can also send us your photos or videos of you, your friends and co-workers. We encourage participants to challenge other companies and friends to join in on the fun. Tag Ridge Area Arc and use the hashtags #Sockchallenge #RAArc. It’s all in good fun for a great cause.
