INDIANAPOLIS — After a relatively successful first year, the Indiana Independent Venue Alliance's "SOCK ON Sock Drive" is back.

IIVA collected almost 2,000 new pairs of socks for houseless people in need of clean and warm socks last year for its first sock drive.

Through February 18, socks can be dropped off at 15 performance venues in Indy or ordered on Amazon and shipped to IIVA's headquarters.

All sock donations will then be given to Horizon House, a full-service agency in Indianapolis that helps people experiencing homelessness, to ensure the items are given to the people and communities that need them the most.

Here are the venues participating in the Sock On.
