KKGS is a nonprofit that collects socks for the homeless while also building relationships between neighbors. Adina is in charge of the organization’s leadership and operations. When not busy collecting socks, Adina fills her time hosting big Shabbat dinners downtown and volunteering with a variety of organizations through which she meets people from all different walks of life. Adina, who influses her work with Jewish values, is motivated by her vision of a world in which people accept each other and act together to make a difference.

She sees KKGS as a flame lighting the way and igniting the passion of those it engages.
