550 Pairs of Socks Collected Across Canada!

SO many socks!

Our 2018 Barefoot for Barefeet sock drive continued to grow as we invited clients and colleagues across the country to collect new, warm socks at their workplaces. The idea was to encourage donations in multiple areas for local organizations that assist low income and homeless individuals over the winter. Last year’s record was blown out of the water with a final tally of 550 pairs of socks!
