Winter Sock Drive for Those in Need of Warm Feet
Organized by: Shay Martin
This time of year can be physically and mentally difficult for vulnerable populations; and warm and clean clothing is a good place to start to lessen that load.
We will be using the funds to purchase and distribute socks and other cold weather necessities to those in need during the Holidays, as socks are consistently in low supplies at various shelters in the DTES.
The items will either be delivered by hand by us or we will donate everything to a shelter if the need is greatest there.
There is no donation too small, so if $5 is all you can spare (the price of a grande latte at Starbucks!) that is wonderful. The website says $10 minimum donation but we can also pick up donations in person whether thats monetary or spare socks/mittens/jackets/etc. themselves.
