For the last five years, The Josie Dye Show and Socks4Souls Canada teamed up during the holiday season and collected thousands of socks from the good people of the GTA. This year, we want to do it again! Help us collect socks for Toronto’s homeless individuals.
The Josie Dye Show announces the 2021 Socks for the Streets campaign, in hopes of collecting thousands of socks for Toronto’s Homeless community.
We’re encouraging the general public to hold their own sock drive or make a monetary donation at Socks4SoulsCanada.com. Sock donations can be dropped of at a number of different locations throughout Toronto. Details coming soon!
Local schools across Toronto can also help! Click here to learn more.
Donations can also be dropped off at the Indie88 Studios at 20 Hanna Ave in Liberty Village, Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm from Monday, December 6th until December 20th, 2021.
Socks4Souls Canada is a primarily volunteer based organization that helps provide warmth, comfort and mobility by distributing new socks for Toronto’s homeless population. According to a 2018 census, there are over 8,700 homeless individuals in the streets in Toronto. Nearly 20% of their medical ailments are related to poor foot care, which significantly impedes their ability to access food, shelter, and other social resources. Socks 4 Souls Canada procures both sock and monetary donations from school and workplace sock drive, corporations, businesses, and private citizens, and distributes them to agencies who work directly with those who are experiencing homelessness across southwestern Ontario.
