519 Pledge for Socks

The 519Pledge For Socks is one of our favourite times of the year when we get to actively engage with YOU, our supportive community. 519Pledge for Socks will be set up at the Farmers Market every Saturday until November 11th. Please consider making a sock donation!

Can you believe that there is a need for over 80,000 pairs of socks? Socks are one of the most asked for item and least thought to be donated! 519 Pursuit created the 519Pledge For Socks to ensure that there is never a low stock of socks in any door our friends walk through.

Winter happens fast and can happen overnight. For friends facing homelessness and extreme poverty, there is little to no time to prepare. Survival is at the front lines of day-to-day living and we are hoping to keep people warm. Starting the day with a clean/fresh pair of socks can re-energize and support one’s overall health and comfort. With the weather fluctuating and environmental factors changing all the time, friends facing homelessness and extreme poverty can be found in damp, cold, or sometimes very wet socks. We want to change this! We want to make sure no toes go cold this winter!
