Compass One Healthcare's Socktober initiative has been featured on KSBY.
Two local hospitals are working to get socks onto the feet of those in need.
Part of Tenet Health Central Coast, Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo and Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton are participating in Socktober all month long with a goal of donating the collected socks to local homeless shelters.
According to Tenet Health, socks are the most request yet least donated clothing item.
This is the third year Tenet Health has participated in Socktober, which is led by Compass One Healthcare.
