Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity Knox Christian School!! With the cold weather now upon us, these socks will go a long way in helping our patrons keep their feet warm❤️As of last week Wednesday we were just 250 pairs of socks away from reaching our goal to collect 1000 pairs of adult sized warm socks. If you would like to help us stuff the Sock-o-metre the deadline for donating is this Friday, November 3rd. The sock collection is in support of Gate 3:16, a drop in center in Oshawa that provides assistance for homeless adults ages 24 and up. See MoreSee Less
