St Albans city train station is partnering with a local charity to support the homeless.
Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) and homelessness charity Centre 33 will launch Great Sock Appeal on Thursday, December 5 at St Albans station.
The appeal will allow commuters to donate a new pair of socks to the homeless to help keep them warm.
Centre 33 chairman Colin Simmons said: "This will provide the centre with one of the most useful items of clothing we can give to our visitors - a clean pair of warm socks - at a cold, wet and often very difficult time of year for them."
Chief operating officer at GTR Steve White added: "Christmas is a time for giving, and all it takes is one pair of socks, less than the price of a coffee, to improve the life of a homeless person this winter.
