The Josie Dye Show’s Socks for The Streets

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.

Additional drop off locations include Blue Banana Market in Kensington Market, Dine Alone Records Store at 864 Eastern Ave, Golden Gecko Coffee at 282 Jane St and Leggat Chevrolet at 360 Rexdale Blvd. Please check for business hours, and have your donation in by Friday, December 17th, 2021.

Indie88’s Sock Drive Broadcast

As a layer of protection, Indie88 WILL NOT be broadcasting or collecting socks at Dufferin Mall.  The Josie Dye show will broadcast live from our station this Saturday, December 18th.  We encourage listeners to visit us at 20 Hanna Ave in Liberty Village to drop off their donations.  Members of Indie88 staff will greet you outside of the building and collect your donation.

Local schools across Toronto can also help! Click here to learn more.

Sock 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.
