For the last six years, Indie88 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 100,000 pairs of socks for Toronto’s unhoused individuals.
Join Indie88 with Socks4Souls Canada on Friday, December 15th and Saturday, December 16th at Cadillac Fairview Mall as we host our 7th annual Socks for the Streets event. We’ll be broadcasting live all-day collecting your new unused sock and monetary donations. We’ll be located by Guest Services on the second level near entrance 4.
Help Carlin and Brent STUFF THE STUDIO this Thursday, December 14th! We’d love for you to have an Amazon Sock order sent to Indie88 and stuff our studio with socks. Have your deliveries sent to: Attn: Carlin & Brent – Indie88 – 20 Hanna Ave, Toronto ON M6K 3E7 by Thursday. Click HERE for an example of socks. If you can’t make it to our Sock broadcast this weekend, you can also drop off your collected socks between 7am and 9:30am, Thursday, December 14th, 2023.
Donations can also be dropped off at a number of locations throughout Toronto and the GTA, including specific Kitchen Stuff Plus locations, XYZ Storage, Dufferin Mall and our offices. Click HERE for complete drop off location details.
Socks 4 Souls Canada is a primarily volunteer based organization that helps provide
warmth, comfort and mobility by distributing new socks for Toronto’s unhoused 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.
