DISNEY LAUNCHES “THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN” SOCK DRIVE

DISNEY launched The Odd Life Of Timothy Green Sock Drive, a program to collect new socks for needy families.

The Walt Disney Studios worked with Hanes, who is collaborating with the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM), to launch The Odd Life of Timothy Green Sock Drive aimed at providing new socks for families in need across the U.S.

The public is asked to take new pairs of socks to any of the community drop-off locations nationwide between now through September 3, 2012. Aside from the community locations, donations may be dropped off at Carmike and Marcus theaters in their communities. Hanes will be standing by to match donations of up to 10,000 pairs of socks. AGRM will distribute the socks to the families they aid.

ABOUT THE MOVIE

Academy Award®–nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (Dan in Real Life, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape) brings enchantment to the screen with The Odd Life of Timothy Green. It’s the inspiring, magical story of a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim—and their small town of Stanleyville—learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.

Disney presents The Odd Life of Timothy Green, with Ahmet Zappa, Scott Sanders and Jim Whitaker producing, story by Ahmet Zappa and screenplay by Peter Hedges. The Odd Life of Timothy Green is slated for release on August 15, 2012.
