Please consider donating new socks, hats, mittens and scarves to Carnegie Community Centre Sock Drive to support Downtown Eastside community members. The Social Justice Team has placed a SOCKS DONATION BOX in the entrance to Hewett Hall. Store bought or handmade items are most welcome.
- New socks are the most requested item by people whose lives include homelessness and/or being under housed.
- They walk often, keep their shoes on almost 24 hours a day, and do not have regular access to laundry facilities.
- New socks prevent infections, diseases, and provide comfort and relief.
- Wool socks can keep feet warm even when wet, so please consider donating wool socks.
