Orlando DJ Dizzlephunk is turning his notable hustling skills toward a good cause this holiday season, with his annual Shoe & Sock Drive in full swing.

Now in its fifth year, Dizzlephunk's Shoe & Sock drive collects donations of new shoes and socks — for children and adults — from dropboxes placed all over town. Then, in tandem with First Methodist Church of Oviedo, the donations are distributed to homeless shelters and schoolchildren in need.

Festively wrapped dropboxes are at the following area merchants and restaurants until Dec. 10, in which you can deposit donations of new shoes and/or socks (very lightly used shoes will also be accepted):

Grape and the Grain
Galactic G Skate Shop
Will's Pub
528 Barbershop
Our Revolution Orlando
Park Ave CDs
The New Standard
Castle Door Studios
Maxine's on Shine

Dizzlephunk will also host a final in-person shindig — alongside Travi Seeds and Creativ Angel — to get donations on Dec. 11 at Grape and the Grain at 10 p.m., depending on your comfort level with events.
