Socks for Vets
I didn't find anything on this when I did a search, so I apologize if it's a duplicate.

The other day I was talking to the LYS owner and she told me that a rep from the local Veteran's Hospital had dropped by. He wanted to know if she had any single socks she'd like to donate, and to spread the word that they could use them. I'd never thought of that application before, but if you knit one sock and never get to the second one, there's probably a veteran out there who could make good use of it.
