BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Team SOKCS will hold a half-time “sock toss” during the next men’s basketball game at CSUB to bring awareness to the lack and inaccessibility of socks among the Bakersfield homeless population.

According to a release, attendees can bring pairs of new socks to throw at the half-time portion of the game to win a prize and fill the donor’s truck bed with new wares to donate to the homeless.

The “sock toss” will take place on Feb. 9 at CSUB’s Icardo Center on 9001 Stockdale Highway from 7:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
