Teresa Heinz, a member of the Arlington Church of Christ in Knoxville, Tenn., started a project that donates socks to the Knoxville Area Rescue Mission.
The project is in memory of her son, Zack, who died in a 2007 car accident.
The Knoxville News Sentinel shared details:

After 18-year-old Zack Heinz died in a car wreck, his mother searched for a way to help others in his memory.
Clean socks seemed the right fit.
This is the third holiday season Teresa Heinz of Powell has gathered and bundled hundreds of pairs of socks. She takes them to Knox Area Rescue Ministries. Each Christmas Eve, Pastor Mychal Spence, KARM’s rescue and hospitality director, hands the socks out to homeless people.
Socks and KARM are wrapped up in Heinz’s memories of her child, an often “macho” teen she says hid his sensitive side. “Zack was no angel. But he is now,” she says.
