The Chiropractors Association of Saskatchewan is partnering with the Salvation Army for the toasty toes sock drive.
Chiropractors across the province will be collecting socks for the next few weeks, with the goal to have at least 12,000 pairs of socks during the drive.
Tracy Bertram, Executive Director of the Chiropractor’s Association of Saskatchewan, says socks are one of the least donated clothing items.
“We understand socks are often one of the most requested, but often least donated items to shelters in many locations,” Bertram said. “We know that our Saskatchewan winters are usually very cold and a lot of people don’t have the proper clothing to keep warm. So with that in mind, we thought this would be a great opportunity to give back to our communities, and to help those that are less fortunate.”
Bertram says last year’s sock drive went very well.
“Last year was our very first year that we had tried the toasty toes sock campaign, and we had great success,” Bertram says. “We were able to collect and distribute close to 15,000 pairs of socks province wide. So again, that was collected in chiropractor clinics through out the province, and then we donated those to local Salvation Army programs through out all of Saskatchewan”
The sock drive ends November 24th.
