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.
If you weren’t able to drop off your donations earlier in December, you can drop them off Saturday, January 22nd at Indie88 at 20 Hanna Ave or Dine Alone Records at 864 Eastern Ave between 10am and 4pm. Staff will be happy to greet you outdoors and take your donations.
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.
