TLABC Seeking “Socks for Santa” Donations

November 19, 2012

The Trial Lawyers Association of BC’s Public Affairs Committee (PAC) is looking for donations for its Socks for Santa project.

“This holiday season, TLABC will be collecting new or gently used, clean socks for Santa to give to the Downtown Eastside shelter. The shelter provides 60 beds each night– space for 40 men and 20 women. This is one of the largest and busiest shelters in Vancouver. Each day they provide their clients with foot baths/foot care, as well as provide them with a clean pair of dry socks. Keeping your feet warm, dry and protected can be quite challenging in this rainy city, and the shelter often runs out of socks.”

The PAC invites donations of new or gently used socks, to be dropped off or sent to 1111 – 1100 Melville St., Vancouver, BC V6E 4A6; or pledges to fund the purchase of socks for the shelter. To make a pledge or for more information, contact [email protected] or call the TLABC office at 604-682-5343 or toll-free 1-888-558-5222.
