AQHYA Members Collect Socks for City Rescue Mission 

The American Quarter Horse Youth Association Executive Committee and regional directors are excited to partner with City Rescue Mission of Oklahoma City to host a sock drive during the 2022 Ford AQHYA World Championship Show July 28 – August 7 at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.

The collection area and donation bins will be located outside of the AQHA Show Office at the Ford AQHYA World.

If you’re attending the Ford AQHYA World, please consider donating new men’s, women’s and children’s socks to the service project. Exhibitors and parents can also donate money via cash, check or an online donation.

Donations can also be purchased through Amazon Wishlist and will be sent directly to the shelter.

The sock drive will serve as a contest between AQHYA regions to see which region can donate the largest number of items during the show. To get credit for your region, you must log your donation information in the donation folder in the Show Office. Please include your region and number of items donated.
