13 Jan Triple the Warmth for Barefoot’s Annual Sock Drive
Our 3rd Annual Barefoot for Barefeet sock drive was a HUGE success. In late November we reached out to friends, clients and colleagues to donate new winter socks in support of the Brunswick Street Mission’s Clothing Bank.
The response was overwhelming!
It started at our Holiday Mixer event, where guests were invited to bring a donation of 1-2 pairs of socks. The idea caught on and several clients offered to collect at their own workplaces.
Our neighbours at Hawthorne Business Centre joined the act and quickly filled up the box placed in our lobby.
Throughout December, our office became stuffed with more and more packages of thick, warm socks.
The grand total counted in early January was 303 pairs of socks–TRIPLE the amount collected last year!
Thank you for helping to warm the feet of those in need.
Brunswick Street Mission volunteers Ainsley and Sandy were very happy to
accept the huge load of socks on behalf of the missions’ clothing bank.
