The Big Sort is a series of sorting events that occur from November 1st to March 15th each year. Dates are set up for group to come to our office to sort, count, and pack the collections of pairs that come in, so that the agencies can come to pick up their boxes.

This is a TEAM event, with your group having between 5 - 20 people, from your office, community group, sorority, company, sports or dance team, and the like. This is not an individual person opportunity at this point.

The task involves physically counting and sorting the pairs, tracking the numbers, and helping to get the boxes to the curb for agencies if they come to pick them up. The event is set up by the group leader, committing to a number of volunteers for 2-3 hours of sorting.

This is a great opportunity for office groups, community service organizations, and the like. Participant minimum age is 18 years old.
