The TLABC Public Affairs Committee (PAC) Fund is presenting Socks for Santa this holiday season. The TLABC will be collecting new or gently used, clean socks for Santa to give to the Downtown Eastside shelter.
The shelter, one of the largest and busiest in Vancouver, provides 60 beds per night – 40 for men and 20 for women. Each day the shelter provides its clients with foot baths and foot care and gives them a clean pair of dry socks. In this rainy climate, keeping your feet warm and your socks dry is quite a challenge, and the shelter frequently runs out of socks.
You can help out by participating in one of the following ways:
- Send or drop off your new or gently used socks to: 1111-1100 Melville St., Vancouver, BC V6E 4A6
- Pledge to donate $5.00 to $20.00 or even more towards the purchase of socks for the shelter
For more information or to make a pledge, please contact [email protected] or call the TLABC office at (604) 682-5343 or toll-free 1-888-558-5222.
